Update: 2015 1040EZ Form and 2015 1040EZ Instructions links above are the correct links to use as of March 7, 2017. This is a popular but outdated post so we wanted you to know. You can find more 2015 Forms and Instructions on our 2015 1040 Form page.
The IRS has already updated many of this year's income tax forms including the 2015 Form 1040EZ. The instructions booklet for 2015 Form 1040EZ, however, has not yet been updated. If you are in a hurry to draft your 2015 Form 1040EZ, we can only suggest that you search the 2015 Publication 17 book to guide you. IRS Pub 17 is not meant to replace form specific instructions such as those for the Form 1040EZ. Pub 17 does however include the IRS income tax tables and other useful information.
The IRS urges all taxpayers to make sure they have all of their income tax return filing information on hand before submitting their 2015 forms. Forms W-2 from employers, Forms 1099 from banks and sub-contract work, and other important tax documents are generally not due until February 1, 2016. For most people, drafting your Form 1040EZ might be helpful. Submitting it early to the IRS might not be helpful. The IRS will not begin processing paper or efiled income tax returns until January 19, 2016.
