2018 was the first year that most of the changes from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act took effect. For the first time, we’re seeing the results on tax returns. Here’s a snapshot of the major changes that happened in 2019.
One of the biggest changes in 2018 concerned tax brackets. There are still seven brackets, but in general the tax rates are now lower with higher income thresholds. These tax brackets remain in effect through 2025.
The new 1040 is shorter and simpler. It is 23 lines, compared to 79 lines on the old 1040, and it replaces the three previous versions.
There are also three popular tax laws that doubled, several common deductions that were eliminated, and some modified tax rules. These changes will affect almost all Americans to some degree.
