Form 1040

Form 1040 is the form used to report your income, calculate your taxes, and claim any applicable credits or deductions. It should be submitted if you have taxable income, or if you need to file a return to claim a refund or to pay taxes. It should also be submitted if you are claiming any credits or deductions, such as the Earned Income Tax Credit or the Child Tax Credit.

Form 1040 is the standard form used by taxpayers to file their federal income tax returns. It is used by individuals, sole proprietors, and certain estates and trusts to report their income and calculate their federal income tax liability. The form is divided into several sections for different types of income and deductions. The information you will need to fill out the form includes your name, address, Social Security number, filing status, and income information such as wages, salaries, tips, and any other income you may have. You'll also need to provide information about any deductions and credits you are claiming. Additionally, you'll need to provide information regarding any estimated tax payments you have made and any balance due. Generally, all taxpayers must file Form 1040 for their federal income tax return. However, some taxpayers may be eligible to file a shorter form such as Form 1040A or Form 1040EZ.

File Form 1040 or 1040-SR by April 18, 2023. The due date is April 18, instead of April 15, because of the Emancipa- tion Day holiday in the District of Columbia – even if you don’t live in the District of Columbia. If you file after this date, you may have to pay interest and penalties.

The mailing address for IRS Form 1040 depends on the state and filing status of the taxpayer. Generally, taxpayers should mail their Form 1040 to the IRS address listed on the form.

Additionally, taxpayers can use the IRS's Where to File tool to find the correct mailing address for their Form 1040.
