What is IRS 1040 Form?

For every U.S. resident, tax filing is mandatory. There are several forms for filing various taxes, including business revenues and personal income. The IRS Form 1040 is the form for filing individual tax returns. The 1040 Form can be filed either online (e-filing) or on paper.

For all individual income tax returns, the deadline is usually on the 15th of April the following year. If the 15th of April falls on the weekend (Saturday or Sunday) or on a national holiday, the date will be moved to the following business day.

The age requirement is the main factor that determines your 1040-SR eligibility. First, the 1040-SR Form is primarily for senior citizens as opposed to the 1040 form. This implies that to be eligible for filing the 1040-SR form, you must be at least 65 years old. As a senior, whether you are retired or still working, you are still eligible for the 1040-SR as long as you meet the age requirement.
