IRS Form 1040EZ was created for taxpayers with a simple life. A simple financial life, that is. Your life may be full of the worst kind of drama, but if you have only have one job, no kids and no investments, you can take comfort in the fact that at least your taxes are going to be simple!
1. Able to Use IRS Form 1040EZ? Then Don’t Pay!
This brings us to why IRS Form 1040EZ is such a great invention. Congrats, IRS! We love your 1040Ez. It’s so simple that almost anyone can fill it out themselves without the help of anyone at all. Seriously, if you can use IRS Form 1040EZ then DON’T PAY to have your taxes done for you! You are a fool to waste your money in this way. You will be charged average of $73 for something that’s as easy as registering for a Facebook account.
2. Did We Mention How EASY the 1040EZ is?
If you’re like me, you get some satisfaction from figuring things out and then doing them for yourself. Added bonus is if this also saves you money. IRS Form 1040EZ makes all this possible because this lovely little on-page tax form will take about 15 minutes tops if you’re slow. When you finish, you’ll feel that wonderful DIY feeling, similar to the feeling you get after wiring your own home for electricity or installing a new toilet on your own.
3. Not only Easy, But Also Fast…You’ll Have More Free Time
Finish your tax return in under half an hour and free up your day to do more fun things. Get it done and move on…all made possible by the wonderfully simple IRS Form 1040EZ.
4. Avoid Spending Time in a Tax Preparation Office
This one I consider to be the best benefit of being able to use the IRS Form 1040EZ. It’s even better than saving $73. You won’t have to go down to that storefront tax preparation office, which is inevitably going to be full of stress and misery. No waiting, no unpleasant contact with other stressed out taxpayers who waited until the last minute to file their taxes. Actually whatever time you go to a tax office it’s probably not going to be the highlight of your week.
5. Using the IRS Form 1040EZ Means You’re More Likely to File Early
IRS Form 1040EZ is so easy and simple that you’re’ more likely to file your taxes early since you won’t be procrastinating quite so much as the other poor souls who are facing using the 1040 or the 1040A. That means you’re done with the IRS for another year, and if you’re due a refund, you’ll get it sooner.
