IRS Link to Publication — Found Here
The Publication 17 is a very large and detailed guide to help individuals correctly file their federal income tax returns.
Form 1040, 1040-A, and 1040-EZ are the return forms used by individuals for federal income tax, but most people won’t know which one to use without either consulting a tax professional or reading this handy 290-some-odd page document.
There are many ins-and-outs when it comes to filing federal income tax returns, and Publication 17 is robust enough to clear up many of the questions that might be asked by non-professional filers and CPAs alike. Issues such as filing status, charitable contributions, and a list of instructions for deductions individuals can take, are all listed, among other things.
There is enough information in this guide to successfully file your own taxes. It tells you line-by-line how to interpret the questions and where to find the information necessary to do the calculations that satisfy the questions, if it is not already presented.
Individuals can use Form 1040, 1040-A, or 1040-EZ.
