E-filers can use the same online software as in previous years to file their taxes. It’s unlikely that you will notice any major changes to the process you’re accustomed to, because software programs are largely interview-based with little interaction with the actual forms (other than to review them at the end of the interview process).

Form 1040EZ no longer exists, but previous EZ filers may qualify for a “simple return,” which is defined differently by the various online e-file software programs. This is because the IRS and Treasury Department attempted to simplify the basic Form 1040 document from a few pages to a “building blocks” system, including a primary form and six new schedules to be completed and attached as needed, which made Forms 1040EZ and 1040A unnecessary.
