Attempting to file a 1040 tax form on your own is not always a simple and smooth matter. Constantly changing tax laws and increasingly complicated forms make the task a little more complicated each year. Taxpayers who attempt to file their 1040 tax forms on their own often overlook deductions or credits and owe more taxes or receive a smaller refund as a result. Additionally, when the 1040 tax form is not prepared correctly, it can delay their refund.
