More about the Federal Form 1040 Individual Income Tax Tax Return
Form 1040 is part of the Individual Income Tax Return. Every United States citizen who meets filing income requirements is required to file Form 1040 with the IRS by April 15th for the previous tax year. For individuals with simple tax returns, Form 1040 may be the only form required to file their tax return. Taxpayers with more complicated returns may need to file additional forms or schedules with their 1040.
We last updated the U.S. Individual Income Tax Return in December 2018, and the latest form we have available is for tax year 2018. This means that we don't yet have the updated form for the current tax year. Please check this page regularly, as we will post the updated form as soon as it is released by the Federal Internal Revenue Service. You can print other Federal tax forms here.

Form 1040 is a Federal Individual Income Tax form. Like the Federal Form 1040, states each provide a core tax return form on which most high-level income and tax calculations are performed. While some taxpayers with simple returns can complete their entire tax return on this single form, in most cases various other additional schedules and forms must be completed, depending on the taxpayer's individual situation, to create a complete income tax return package.
About the Individual Income Tax
The IRS and most states collect a personal income tax, which is paid throughout the year via tax withholding or estimated income tax payments.
Most taxpayers are required to file a yearly income tax return in April to both the Internal Revenue Service and their state's revenue department, which will result in either a tax refund of excess withheld income or a tax payment if the withholding does not cover the taxpayer's entire liability. Every taxpayer's situation is different - please consult a CPA or licensed tax preparer to ensure that you are filing the correct tax forms!
