The IRS has revised impacted forms, instructions, and publications, that the IRS had already released, and reposted them to www.irs.gov/DownloadForms. The links above take you to the updated versions. The updated revisions will not be printed. They will only be available on IRS.gov.

If you have already filed your 2017 federal tax return and are eligible for any of the benefits included in the new law, you may file an amended return using Form 1040X. Amended returns cannot be filed electronically and can take up to 16 weeks to process.
