Income tax forms and instructions have been ordered for distribution at the Lewisville Public Library. Following the most expansive tax law changes in 30 years, the IRS created a shorter, simpler Form 1040 for the 2019 tax season. The new Form 1040 will replace the current Form 1040 as well as the Form 1040A and the Form 1040EZ.
The new Form 1040 uses a "building block" approach, in which the tax return is reduced to a simple form. That form can then be supplemented with additional schedules if needed. Taxpayers with straightforward tax situations would only need to file this new 1040 with no additional schedules.
The new Form 1040 will be distributed as Form 1040 Booklet and will contain one copy of the new Form 1040 along with one copy of Schedules 1 through 6. The instructions for Form 1040 will be a separate publication. The Library has ordered quantities of both the Form 1040 Booklet and the 1040 Instructions.
|Publication||Library has received?*|
|Form 1040 Booklet||YES|
*The IRS ships income tax forms and publications as they become available. As soon as the forms are received, the Library makes them immediately available on the Tax Form shelf located on the 1st floor of the Library near the stair case.
