Some of the adjustments to gross income that are available to filers of Form 1040, but not to filers of Form 1040EZ or Form 1040A are alimony paid, moving expenses, 50% of self-employment tax, self-employed health insurance, Archer MSA deduction, penalty for early withdrawal of savings, and the deduction for Keogh, SEP, and SIMPLE plans. Some of the types of income that can only be reported on Form 1040 are self-employment income, rents and royalties, gains and losses from property sales, alimony received, and state tax refunds. If you are required to figure alternative minimum tax, you must file using Form 1040 rather than one of the other forms.
The due date for filing your Form 1040 is April 15. However, if April 15 happens to be on a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday, the due date is moved to the next business day.
