IRS Schedule 2 Form 1040 or 1040-SR

If the declarant has any taxation withdrawals that they cannot enter directly in Forms 1040 or 1040-RS, they should use Additional Taxes Schedule 2 to compute and reflect the required data. Therefore, Schedule 2 has the following major focal aspects:

  • Use the amount calculated in Unit 3 of Schedule 2 to define Line 12 (b) of Forms 1040 or 1040-RS.
  • Use the total taxation withdrawal amount from Unit 10 of Schedule 2 to clarify Line 15 in Forms 1040 or 1040-RS.

Schedule 2 is universal for 1040-papers and should be completed if the declarant owes the following taxes:

  • Household taxes
  • Self-employment taxation withdrawals
  • IRA and retirement plan taxes
  • Other tax-favored accounts
  • Redundant premium tax credit refund
  • Alternative minimum tax (AMT)
