Most of the 2015 federal forms and schedules are now available to download at the IRS website – including Form 1040 and 1040A and the instruction booklet.

There appears to be no changes to the 1040, 1040A or the Schedules. Except for the obvious changes for identifying the year and the COLA adjustments for the Standard Deduction and personal exemption amounts, the 2015 versions are exactly the same as the 2014 versions.

The 2015 NJ, NY, and PA forms are not yet available, although the NY 2015 instructions for IT-201 and IT-203 are.

NY once again requires the IT-2 and IT-1099-R forms instead of attaching W-2 and 1099-R copies, which will waste additional valuable time during the tax season for me.

I do not anticipate any changes to the NJ-1040.
