Taxpayers can download a copy of an IRS 1040EZ tax form and the instruction booklet from the Internal Revenue Service website. The 1040EZ form and instructions also are available from tax preparation services, such as TurboTax, the company states.
The 1040EZ Form is a simpler version of IRS Form 1040 that can be used to file federal income taxes, says TurboTax. Taxpayers may use this form if their taxable income is below an allotted amount set by the IRS, and if it comes only from wages, salaries, tips or unemployment compensation. Taxpayers can use the form if they don't claim any dependents, and those who meet the eligibility criteria can be single or married filing jointly.
