For the current year, I'm assuming you mean 2011, since 2012 tax forms aren't out yet. Is that correct?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

Yes, I do mean 2011.


Thanks Danielle.

You're welcome.

Here are links to the forms:


1040 -

Schedule A-

Schedule B-



I also wanted to let you know of two assumptions I made here and can go back and change if necessary.

1) Dividends are not qualified dividends

2) To use the tax tables vs. percentage of method.


Please let me know if either of my above assumptions are incorrect and I will get it started for you.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
