What is the difference between a 1040 and 1040ez

You can only file Form 1040EZ if the following are true:

"Single or Married Filing Joint
Under age 65
No dependents
Interest income is below $400
Income or combined incomes (Form W-2) below $50,000"

If you don't fall within those guidelines you will have to file either Form 1040A or Form 1040.
 
Form 1040A:

"Income or combined incomes below $50,000
Capital gain distributions, but no other capital gains or losses
Only IRA or student loan adjustments to your income
You do NOT itemize deductions"

If you can't file either of these Forms, you must file Form 1040.
