Got it...thanks. After actually reading it more in depth, I gathered that. Have ppl already started receiving their w-2's?
The 1040 (or 1040A or 1040EZ) is the form that you get as a result of filing your taxes (if you use one of the online services, like taxact.com, it will just spit this form out for you once you give them all your info). So basically to get a 1040, you need to file your taxes.
