What is form 1040? 

IRS 1040 form is a necessary document that must be filled by all US citizens to declare their income for the year. Although there is a standard form template, its variations can be changed according to the groups of taxpayers it was designed for. 

What I need form 1040 for? 

There are three main reasons why you need to fill the form:

  • To set the tax amount for each citizen. This number depends on the level of income;
  • Check if a person needs to receive a tax refund;
  • Thanks to the completed form, the state gets information on whether the taxpayer should pay money. 

Filling out form 1040

The form 1040 has about 79 lines, which you need to fill. In general, it divides into two main sections: 

  • The part with the personal information. Here you need to specify your family status, First name, Last name, home address, and so on. Also, please note, if you have a joint return with your spouse, you need to get his or her name too;
  • The second part is much harder and requires more attention from you. Here you need to write down the dependents if you have such and fill out the fields related to your income.

Do not forget to put the sign on the bottom of the document.

    Now that I’ve switched from Word to PDFLiner, I save lots of time processing and digitally distributing tons of billing forms, work orders, forecast reports, and invoices. In addition to this, thanks to PDFLiner, we’ve significantly minimized our paper consumption. Excellent tool that helps me cope with my business workflow faster and easier.

    PDFLiner allows me to streamline the processes of generating and managing legal documents, as well as collecting electronic signatures for all my contracts and agreements. I like that I can customize forms on the go and access PDFLiner from all my gadgets. No more printing or scanning! That’s just brilliant!

    When you’re a student, you deal with PDFs a lot… Newsletters, various worksheets, official forms you need to fill in and sign, etc… To me, filling out a PDF form used to be among the trickiest and most time-consuming things ever. But then a friend of mine introduced me to PDFLiner, and oh my God, my life has changed since then. It’s easy to use and has so many great features. Just awesome, I love it!
