1040 form

The standard individual tax return form of the IRS.

1040 Form

A document that individuals and some corporations must file with the IRS each year. The 1040 form calculates income, deductions, and credits, and ultimately arrives at how much, if any, tax the filer owes for the year. The form itself is short, but many taxpayers must use additional forms to calculate how things like dividend income and capital gains are taxed on the 1040. See also: 1040EZ.
