Forms 1040

The Form 1040 is the base IRS income tax form - and first page - of a Federal or IRS income tax return for a given tax year; the 1040 form changes by tax year. An income tax return is filed or e-Filed annually usually by April 15 of the following year of the tax year. Depending of your personal tax situation, there are many other forms and schedules they might be part of your complete tax return.
