Just finished doing myown 2018 taxes. Smaller 1040? Hardley!Printing off on your own computer now find It’s got the designated 1040 looking shorter and smaller, but it still takes up two pages so no paper saved there. Iven though the bottom of Form1040 says: “For Disclosure, Privacy Act, and Paperwork Reduction Act Notice, see separate instructions. Cat. No. 11320B Form1040 (2018)”
But it’s good for the paper mills!

Bad for Big Trees! Probably 135,000,000 extra pieces of paper used this year! That’s about 1700 extra trees !
My paper use for my 1040 is Itemized here:
My Page 1 – My basic tax info like all years only the signature is on this page rather than being on the 2nd page. (Only uses 1/2 the page)
My Page 2 – Again only 1/2 a page, but leaving out a whole lot of things that were on the old 1040 so what do I have to do? Print More Pages!
Then come Schedule 1,2,3,4,5,6….all with only about twoinches of printing on them.
Plus you still have to use Schedule A,B,C,D,E,F,…if their original forms.
Is there a CONSPIRACY going on?
WELL! Note how many RESERVED BLANK TAX SPACES and on these new forms. Guess how long they will stay blank in coming years? $$$$$$$
WAS THERE A BONUS in all this? YES!! I DID HAVE A LARGER DEDUCTION!!
