Every tax season, taxpayers file a multitude of forms to disclose various avenues of income, expenses and other financial data. There are so many, so let’s look at the most common ones.
This form is used by taxpayers to file an annual income tax return.
This form is made especially for taxpayers 65 years old and older. Form 1040EZ is simplified because it does not account for dependents, making more than $100,00 in a year, and itemizing your deductions.
Schedule A is for itemizing deductions.
Next, schedule B is for reporting taxable interest or dividends exceeding $1,500.
Additionally, schedule C is for reporting any profit or loss from a business, if you own one.
Lastly, schedule D is for reporting capital gains and losses.
