1040EZ Form

The HTML to link to this page
 

The 1040EZ form is the easiest (hence the name) of the 1040 forms with which individuals file their yearly taxes with the Internal Revenue Service. The 1040EZ form is only one page long. The 1040EZ form is used by taxpayers with very simple tax situations. To qualify for the 1040EZ form, an individual must have taxable income below a certain amount (which can change year to year); must take the standard deduction instead of separate, itemized deductions; and must not use IRS tax schedules with their forms. There are other qualifications as well with the 1040EZ form. The booklet for the 1040EZ form spells out the restrictions on its use. One can use electronic filing to file one's 1040EZ form.
