Tax Form Changes
Following the most expansive tax law changes in 30 years, the IRS created a shorter, simpler Form 1040 for the 2018 tax season. The New Form 1040, will replace the current Form 1040, Form 1040A, and Form 1040EZ.
You may pick up the 1040 Form Package along with the Instructions at any Osceola Library location. The Package 1040 includes one copy of the new Form 1040 along with one copy of all 6 of the new schedules. Visit the IRS website for forms and complete law changes.
