MITRE 1040 Form Research Study

Welcome to the MITRE 1040 Form study site. Thank you for visiting and answering a few questions to help us determine if you are eligible to participate in this research study.

Please note: If you are inquiring from the Portland or Chicago area, our interview time slots are full and we are not accepting more participants from these locations at this time. Thank you for your interest.

The IRS plans to use a redesigned 1040 form for the 2019 filing season. MITRE is conducting a study about the new 1040 form for the IRS. MITRE is looking for volunteers in your area to participate in a 60- to 90-minute, in-person research interview. Participants will receive a $100 pre-paid VISA gift card as a token of our appreciation.

The questions below will help us determine whether you are eligible to participate. A MITRE employee will call or email you back if you are eligible.

If you qualify, we will call you to schedule your interview and to ask a few more eligibility questions.

Thank you for your responses. We will be in touch soon if you are eligible to participate in the independent research study.

For any questions about this study, please contact the MITRE team at (571) 310-1902.
