For TY2019 the IRS has made some additional changes to the Form 1040 and associated schedules. It also has created Form 1040SR for seniors.
The IRS moved a few items around on the Form 1040 itself and consolidated items from the schedules. This allowed the IRS to eliminate Schedules 4 – 6 therefore there are only three associated schedules with Form 1040 for 2019.
Here is what changed on Form 1040 and its associated Schedules:Form 1040
New Form 1040SR
This form was mandated by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. Here are highlights of this form:
The addition of this form and the changes to make it easier to read was put in place for those taxpayers who still complete their returns by hand. For those who use tax software to complete their return it will only affect the version of the Form 1040 that will be printed from the program.
