The IRS has updated and published their printable 2017 Form 1040 Instructions booklet. Historically the IRS published Form 1040 and the corresponding Form 1040 Instructions booklet during the month of December. Last year the 2016 Form 1040 Instructions booklet was delayed until January due to last minute income tax law changes. This year both the 2017 Form 1040 and the corresponding 2017 Form 1040 Instructions booklet were delayed until mid-January.
