2019 Tax Information
The following information was released by the IRS. Additional details can be found by visiting www.irs.gov/newsroom.
The Internal Revenue Service plans to streamline the Form 1040 into a shorter, simpler form 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 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 Azle Memorial Library will receive limited quantifies of the new 1040 and associated schedules, and instructions booklets beginning in early February. Call to confirm arrival.
