The form 1040 is used in an individual tax return, to be filed with the Internal Revenue Service for an income tax filing.
Ultimately it determines if you owe taxes or if you are getting a refund.


The form has instructions, so it is easier than it first appears to use.
It serves as a worksheet used when figuring a filing status.
It asks if the filing is for single or married etc., then list exemptions.

Next you fill in wages salaries and tips and attach any W-2 forms you would have.
It goes on to ask about alimony that you may have received and your schedule C profit or loss from business.
Capital gains, IRA rental income, etc. are all listed in the Income section.

Adjusted Gross Income

Next is the Adjusted Gross Income section.
It asks about some specific sources such as alimony you may have paid out. There is a line for health insurance deductions as well as tuition, etc.

Tax and Credits etc.

The "Tax and Credits" section asks if you or your spouse was born before January 2,1946 and are blind. There is an itemized deductions (Schedule A) section.
There are lines for foreign tax credits, child and dependent care expenses, etc. It goes on to ask about other taxes and payments.

Do The Math

That pretty much does it except for the last bit of adding things up to determine if you win or lose.
