Beginning in tax year 2019, the IRS added a new 1040-SR Form for seniors. The program will automatically determine whether you qualify to use the 1040-SR Form or the 1040 Form based on your entries.
Forms 1040-EZ, and 1040-A are for tax years 2017 and prior, and these forms no longer supported in our program.
When should I use Form 1040?
You must use the Form 1040 if you are required to file a current year tax return and are younger than 65.
When should I use Form 1040-SR?
The Form 1040-SR uses the same schedules and instructions as the Form 1040. The only key difference with the Form 1040-SR is the text being larger. You must be 65 or older before you can file using a 1040-SR.
How can I get Form 1040-EZ or Form 1040-A to manually complete?
Both Forms 1040-EZ and 1040-A can be found in the IRS prior year archive.
