28 Mar Tax Return Review Hints
|Prior to e-filing your tax return, you will want to check it for accuracy. Outlined here is a checklist of things to review on your tax return.
Adjusted Gross Income
Most tax returns will not have many lines entered in this area, but some might need special attention:
Taxes and Credits
Any other entries in this section should be understandable. If in doubt, ask for clarification.
The Balance of the 1040
Important: If asking for a direct deposit of your refund, double check the account number. Errors in this area are hard to correct once your tax return is processed.
Other Forms and Schedules
Review the supporting schedules. Pay special attention to any missing schedules and new ones required for this year’s tax filings. As a final suggestion, pull out last year’s tax return and compare it with this year’s filing. Focus your questions and review on the areas with significant differences.
