How to Get 1040 Forms - Podcast text script
Hi, my name is Eric, and I work for the Internal Revenue Service.
So, you want to get a blank 1040 form, huh?
Well, it's easy to get a copy from our very popular website.
You can download it by going to IRS.gov/form1040.
There, you'll find the 1040 form, itself, the instructions, and if you click on "forms and schedules," You'll see links for schedules "A," "B," "C," and related tax forms, as well.
Now, if the 1040EZ is more your style, well, that's easy to download, too.
Just go to IRS.gov/form1040ez.
If you'd rather just forget about all those paper forms and instead fill out your forms electronically online, well, you can do that, too.
Just go to IRS.gov/freefile and click on "Use Free File Fillable Forms."
Now, if you want to take the next step and let tax software do all the number crunching for you, well, that's easy to do, too.
And most people can do it for free.
Just select "Pick a Free File company."
Then the software will fill out all the right forms for you.
And for all of your tax-return filing needs, you be sure to come back and visit us real soon, won't you, at www.IRS.gov.
