The IRS Form 1040EZ was a simplified tax form that was once available for use by certain taxpayers with straightforward financial situations. However, starting with the 2018 tax year, the 1040EZ, along with the Forms 1040A and the basic 1040, was consolidated into a single, redesigned Form 1040.

The new Form 1040 is intended to streamline the tax return process by incorporating the necessary information from the previous three forms into a single document. The redesigned form includes only essential fields for reporting income, deductions, and credits.

If you need to file a federal income tax return, you will now use the new Form 1040 and any applicable schedules. The IRS has introduced additional schedules that taxpayers may need to attach to the Form 1040 based on their specific tax situations.

Keep in mind that tax laws and forms may change, so it’s advisable to refer to the most recent IRS publications or consult with a tax professional for the latest information and guidance. Additionally, each state may have its own tax forms and filing requirements, so you should also check with your state’s tax agency for specific details.
