Use the following information to prepare the various schedules/forms for Mark and Lori that are indicated on the class schedule of assignments. You will also use this information (and the information from the various schedules that you will have prepared) to prepare a federal form 1040 for Mark and Lori for 2014. Be sure to include all necessary forms and schedules to complete the tax return even if they were not prepared as individual assignments. Also, please put all forms for your completed Form 1040 in the proper order per the IRS attachment instructions. You may obtain the necessary forms and instructions from the IRS website: which has a forms and publications tab.
For the individual form submissions and for the final form 1040, you must prepare the cover sheet (last page of this document) that details any assumptions made regarding issues on the individual forms or on the tax return as a whole. Place the completed assumptions sheet on top of your forms or tax return when you submit the finished products. (Make sure your completed tax forms are consistent with your final stated assumptions.) The cover sheet may be typed. You may add additional rows to the cover sheet if necessary.
Also, if you combine any numbers to place them on the forms or the tax return please show the detail on the assumptions sheet. Also be sure to label any items placed on the forms or tax return so they can be identified.
