The shorter filing forms, 1040EZ and 1040A, are no longer used by the IRS, effective January 1, 2019. They have been replaced by the new Form 1040.

The IRS and Treasury Department attempted to simplify the basic Form 1040 document from a few pages to a “building blocks” system; the Form 1040 is now a single primary page with six new schedules to be completed and attached to your Form 1040 as needed. With the new system in place, the shorter Forms 1040EZ and 1040A became unnecessary.

The filing process with 1040.com is no different than before; you’ll walk through an easy interview-style process, with the opportunity to review Form 1040 and applicable forms, schedules, and worksheets before e-filing your tax return to the IRS. Choose direct deposit and you’ll receive your fastest possible tax refund.
