FILE - In this April 16, 2012 file photo, a 2011 1040 tax form along with other income tax forms are seen at the entrance of the Illinois Department of Revenue in Springfield, Ill. Ready or not, big changes lie ahead for virtually every U.S. taxpayer next year.  Tax cuts put into place under the Bush administration that slashed rates on wages, dividends and capital gains are set to expire at the end of 2012. The Social Security payroll tax cut enacted this year also will end, as will the exemption of millions of middle-class families from the alternative minimum tax.  (AP Photo/Seth Perlman)
