The IRS Releases New Postcard Form 1040

Following up on Tuesday's  post, NY Times: The New Tax Form Is Postcard-Size, But More Complicated Than Ever:  the IRS yesterday released a draft version of the new Form 1040:


1040 2

This is an early release draft of the 2018 IRS Form 1040, U.S. Individual Income Tax Return, which the IRS is providing for your information, review, and comment. There is a 30-day comment period for this draft form.

I'm not impressed, but I figured that if the IRS would come out with a post card size 1040, it would be one requiring a magnifying glass to read. The only significant change is moving the signature block.

For those of you trying to abolish ICE: Deal. If you also agree to abolish the IRS.
