Problems: Chapter 8-53 (Janice Morgan) South-Western’s Federal Taxation, Comprehensive Volume (2021). Prepare the Tax Return for 2020.

The following information should be helpful in your preparation of the tax return.
(1) (a) Requirement: Prepare the federal income tax return on the appropriate IRS forms. (Even if you use a software program, you must turn in manual entries on IRS forms.) Copies of those forms and instructions are available at www.irs.gov

(2) Strategy: You might want to start with page 1 of the 1040 and manually make entries (pencil recommended). You may then need to do subsidiary forms (e.g., Schedules C). You might also want to work out the figures for the tax formula roughly first before beginning the return.
