The 1040A works well for those whose income is at or below $100,000, can claim tax credits or claim adjustments to income from IRA contributions.

The long 1040 form must be used by people who made more than $100,000, claim itemized deductions or are reporting income from a property sale. Those who are self-employed also need to use the 1040 form.
