A new form for 2019 is the 1040-SR, U.S. Tax Return for Seniors.

Save yourself a trip to the IRS website. You can print most of the federal forms from the list below. Please note: The vast majority of these federal forms are 2019s. Not all have been updated, however. For example, the 2019 instruction booklet for the 1040 form is not yet available.


We do not yet have 2019 Illinois income tax forms in print for the taking. (And, the Illinois forms in the list below are not yet 2019s.)

To order state tax forms, call 800-356-6302. (This tax forms order line is open 24/7.)

Forms should be available after January 10. However it's more likely they'll be available at the end of January. The most popular state income tax forms are:

  • Form 1040 (Individual Income Tax Return)
  • Schedule ICR (Illinois Credits)
  • Schedule E/EIC (Exemption and Earned Income Credit)
