What income tax return do I file?

What income tax return do I file?

The income tax return form you need to file depends on your personal and financial situation. In the United States, the most commonly used tax forms are:

  1. Form 1040: This is the standard tax form used by individuals to file their federal income tax return. It is divided into several sections, including income, deductions, and credits.
  2. Form 1040-SR: This is a simplified version of Form 1040 designed specifically for seniors. It has a larger print and fewer schedules and attachments.
  3. Form 1040-EZ: This is a very simple tax form that can be used by individuals with straightforward tax situations. It can only be used if you have taxable income of less than $100,000, you are not claiming any dependents, and you are not taking any itemized deductions.
  4. Form 1040-NR: This form is used by nonresident aliens to report their income and claim a refund of any tax withheld.
  5. Form 1040-NR EZ: This is a simplified version of Form 1040-NR that can be used by nonresident aliens with very simple tax situations.

In addition to these forms, you may also need to file other schedules or forms depending on your specific circumstances. You can find a complete list of tax forms and instructions on the IRS website. If you are not sure which form to use, you may want to consider seeking the help of a tax professional.
