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/...

How can I fill out an IRS form 8379?
Form 8379, the Injured Spouse declaration, is used to ensure that a spouse’s share of a refund from a joint tax return is not used by the IRS as an offset to pay a tax obligation of the other spouse.Before you file this, make sure that you know the difference between this and the Innocent Spouse declaration, Form 8857. You use Form 8379 when your spouse owes money for a legally enforeceable tax debt (such as a student loan which is in default) for which you are not jointly liable. You use Form 8857 when you want to be released from tax liability for an understatement of tax that resulted from actions taken by your spouse of which you had no knowledge, and had no reason to know.As the other answers have specified, you follow the Instructions for Form 8379 (11/2016) on the IRS Web site to actually fill it out.
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.
