FAQ

Does the IRS require filling in the "cents" fields on form 1040?
No, you are not required to show the cents, however, you should round up or down any cent amount.Computations:The following information may be useful in making the return easier to complete. Rounding off dollars: You can round off cents to whole dollars on your return and schedules. If you do round to whole dollars, you must round all amounts. To round, drop amounts under 50 cents and increase amounts from 50 to 99 cents to the next dollar.For example, $1.39 becomes $1 and $2.50 becomes $3. If you have to add two or more amounts to figure the amount to enter on a line, include cents when adding the amounts and round off only the total.Equal amounts: If you are asked to enter the smaller or larger of two equal amounts, enter that amount.Negative amounts: If you file a paper return and you need to enter a negative amount, put the amount in parentheses rather than using a minus sign. To combine positive and negative amounts, add all the positive amounts together and then subtract the negative amounts.You may find this and additional information on this website: https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/...

Filed 1040NR for 2016 and will file 1040 for 2017. Send 83 (b) for stocks exercised in 2017 to IRS mailing address in Austin or IRS in California?
When you make the 83(b) election, you mail the form to the center where you will file your taxes - which in this case is Fresno. You have 30 days from the date of exercise to do so.
I did not file an IRS 1040 for 2014-2016. Is it too late for the refund for 2014?
You can receive a refund of overpayment for tax year 2014 as long as you file the return for that year on or before April 15, 2018, that being three years from when your 2014 return was due. If you file after April 15, 2018 (or if you never file) you will be still liable for any underpayment of tax and for penalties, but cannot receive a refund of any overpayment.
What is the earliest time in the year I can fill my taxes (1040) with the IRS? January 1?
If you file on paper, you can file as soon as the IRS releases the official versions of the tax forms you need for the tax year.If you file electronically, you can usually file a return as soon as the electronic return originator (ERO) is up and running - but the return will usually be held by the ERO until the IRS is ready to accept them, which is usually around the middle of January. You won't necessarily see your electronic return processed any faster if you file before the IRS is ready than if you wait until the IRS is accepting returns.

Do 1099 workers have to pay estimated taxes?
Yes, you are supposed to pay estimated taxes if you expect to owe more than $1,000 in tax. This is a very rough estimate and shouldn’t be taken as fact, but $1K in tax roughly equates to $7,000 in net earnings over the course of a year (excluding any type of W-2 income from a normal job).Estimated taxes are due four times per year, payments are not exactly quarterly though. The IRS’ website has the due dates of each payment. To file, you’ll need to fill out Form 1040-ES: https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/.... The form has instructions on how to pay.Another useful resource is this freelancer tax calculator: Freelancer Income Tax Calculator 2016.

The 1040 Instructions will provide step-by-step instructions on how to prepare the 1040. IRS Publication 17 is also an important resource to use while preparing your 1040 return. You can prepare it online through the IRS website or through a software program. You can also prepare it by hand and mail it in, or you can see a professional tax preparer to assist you with preparing and filing your return.
How do you fill out line 5 on a 1040EZ tax form?
I suspect the question is related to knowing whether someone can claim you as a dependent, because otherwise line 5 itself is pretty clear.General answer: if you are under 19, or a full-time student under the age of 24, your parents can probably claim you as a dependent. If you are living with someone to whom you are not married and who is providing you with more than half of your support, that person can probably claim you as a dependent. If you are married and filing jointly, your spouse needs to answer the same questions.Note that whether those individuals actually do claim you as a dependent doesn't matter, the question is whether they can. It is not a choice.
