Determining which tax forms to use and how to complete them can be complex. Between individual filing processes and business filing needs, it’s challenging for many taxpayers to find and complete the correct forms. However, filling out the appropriate IRS forms is crucial when filing both federal and state income taxes
There are numerous tax forms individual taxpayers may need to use, including Form 1040 (U.S. Individual Income Tax Return), Form 9465 (Installment Agreement Request), and Form W-9 (Request for Taxpayer Identification Number and Certification) or Form W-7 (Application for IRS Individual Taxpayer Identification Number). IRS tax forms for businesses differ. As a business owner, you may be required to complete IRS Form SS-4 (Application for Employer Identification Number (EIN)), Form 941 (Employer’s Quarterly Federal Tax Return), Form W-4 (Employee’s Withholding Allowance Certificate), or Form W-2 (Wage and Tax Statement).
