Tax Guy: How the new Form 1040 could save you money before Tax Day

The IRS has released the new-and-improved Form 1040 for your 2018 individual federal income tax return. The good news is the return is now postcard-sized if your tax situation is super-simple. The bad news is it’s probably not — in which case the new Form 1040 is just alarmingly different than before rather than simpler. So if you really hate change, stop here and hire a tax pro to prepare your 2018 return. Otherwise, please keep reading, but make sure you’re sitting down.

Key Point: The due date for your 2018 Form 1040 is April 15, 2019, unless you live in Maine or Massachusetts, in which case your deadline is April 17, 2019.
