What is a 1040EZ?

A 1040EZ is the shortest federal income tax form designed for taxpayers who are filing "single" or "marrying filing jointly" with no dependents.


To complete this form you will need the W-2 and the 1099-int.

Who do you get it from?

The bank sends you the 1099-int form and your employer will give you the W-2 form. Then, you get the 1040EZ from the IRS.


Then, the final due date for you your taxes is April 15.
