Seniors age 65 and older are getting a new tax return to fill out…the 1040-SR. IRS released a draft of the form for 2019. It has the same line items and schedules as the regular 1040, but includes larger-print text and other alterations for aging eyes. One helpful inclusion is a standard deduction chart that’s printed on the form, so seniors won’t have to hunt in the instructions to figure the amount to include. Filing the 1040-SR isn’t mandatory. Seniors can continue to use the 1040 if desired.
