1040A Form

1040A Form

In the United States, a simplified version of the 1040 Form on which a taxpayer lists his/her income. In order to be eligible to use the 1040A, the taxpayer must not itemize deductions, own a business, or exceed a certain ceiling on income. It is more complex than the 1040EZ Form, but it appeals primarily to new taxpayers who do not have dependents and cannot claim other credits.
