Major Changes to Tax Forms: Changes to Forms 1040 and 1040 A, U.S. Individual Income Tax Returns, and Form 1040 EZ, Income Tax Return for Single and Joint Filers with No Dependents

Following the most expansive tax law changes in 30 years, the IRS created a shorter, simpler Form 1040 for the 2019 tax season. The new Form 1040 will replace the current Form 1040 as well as the Form 1040A and the Form 1040EZ.

Form 1040 and Schedules 1-6 as Package 1040. The Package 1040 will include one copy of the new Form 1040 along with one copy of the schedules. The Instructions for Form 1040 will be a separate product.


Package 1040 Contents

Form 1040 — U.S. Individual Income Tax Return
