Form 1040 has been redesigned for tax year 2018. The revised form consolidates Forms 1040, 1040A and 1040-EZ into one form that all individual taxpayers will use to file their 2018 federal income tax return.
Renew ITIN to avoid refund delays
- Many Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers (ITINs) expired on December 31, 2018.
- This includes any ITIN not used on a tax return at least once in the past three years.
- Also, any ITIN with middle digits of 73, 74, 75, 76, 77, 81 and 82 is now expired.
- ITINs that have middle digits 70, 71, 72 or 80 expired December 31, 2017, but taxpayers can still renew them.
- Affected taxpayers should act soon to avoid refund delays and possible loss of eligibility for some key tax benefits until the ITIN is renewed.
- It can take up to 11 weeks to process a complete and accurate ITIN renewal application.
