IRS Schedule B Form 1040

IRS Schedule B, an attachment to Form 1040, is titled “Interest and Ordinary Dividends.” Taxpayers use this form to report the amount of interest and ordinary dividends received during the tax year that exceed certain thresholds. Specifically, Schedule B is required if the total amount of interest and dividends a taxpayer receives exceeds $1,500 or if the taxpayer has received interest or dividends from certain foreign accounts or trusts. Schedule B is organized into three sections where taxpayers must list:

  • All sources and amounts of interest income,
  • All sources and amounts of dividend income,
  • Information related to foreign accounts and trusts, if applicable.

This form ensures that taxpayers accurately report their income from these sources. Completing Schedule B accurately is essential for compliance with tax laws and correctly calculating taxable income, potentially affecting the taxpayer’s overall tax liability.

How to Complete It Properly?

This supplement to the main duty form consists only of one page divided into three parts. Every part consists of several lines and boxes to be checked. You should complete these lines, as many as necessary, depending on the number of the payment documents you have received from different payers throughout the reported year.

You can make more than one record on one line, but be sure that the information is readable, the sums of money in particular. It is admittable to enclose additional pages if you need more space, but don’t forget to indicate your name (identically to the main duty form) and the SSN. We recommend filling out this document with the help of our form building software to make the task easier, save your time and eliminate all possible mistakes.

1. Start with Pointing Out Your Name
