The Internal Revenue Service said that Form 1120-A, U.S. Corporation Short-Form Income Tax Return, is now obsolete.

The move comes as the IRS pushes for more detailed disclosures from companies of their tax situations. However, the main reason for the change, according to the IRS, was because of the declining use of the form.

"Form 1120-A filers have been steadily decreasing in number," said Robert Marvin, an IRS spokesman.
