14 Jul IRS Debuts Postcard-sized 1040 for 2018
At the end of June, the IRS unveiled a new draft version of the 2018 Form 1040. This newly proposed postcard-sized 1040 form replaces the old 2017 1040, as well as forms 1040EZ and 1040A. While some in Washington are celebrating the design as a simpler way to file, a closer look may tell a different story.
