In June 2018 the IRS announced they were working on changes to the 1040 tax forms. The new 1040 form consolidates the three versions of the 1040 into one form. In addition to shortening Form 1040, the changes eliminate Forms 1040EZ and 1040A and increase the number of tax schedules supporting Form 1040 by six additional forms. You are most likely already done with your taxes and TurboTax doesn’t make you know tax forms or tax laws so you probably didn’t notice any changes when you filed with TurboTax, but we want to keep you informed about the new Form 1040 and the six new schedules. Check out our cool interactive that lets you click on your profile and see what forms apply to you.
*This interactive only refers to the new 1040 and new schedules. Your tax return may also include additional schedules like schedule A for itemized tax deductions.
