I don't know how...

I don't know how to fill out the schedule d tax worksheet or qualified dividends and capital gain tax worksheet

Accountant's Assistant: The Accountant will know how to help. Please tell me more, so we can help you best.

I received a letter from the IRS about my 2016 return indicating that I should have filled that out and it would have reduced my tax obligation the gave me the reduction but I don't know how to figure it out for 2017

Accountant's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Accountant should know?

The mutual funds are from American funds - I have the 1099-DIV form. Last year the only thing I included was line 13 on Schedule D and lines 9a and 13 on my 1040

On the 1099-DIV form, I have total ordinary dividends 1a, Qualified dividends 1b, and total capital gains distributions. How do I figure the tax on these items and how do I put this information into my return?

You will need to prepare your tax return before you will come to that worksheet.

1099-DIV form

box 1a Total ordinary dividends -->> 1040 line 9a

box 1b Qualified dividends -->> 1040 line 9b

box 2a Total capital gain distr -->> 1040 line 13

Let me know if that helps.

Thanks for trying. I knew what you responded. I don't know how to figure out if I qualify for a reduced tax rate.

You do qualify for reduced rate on the amount reported on 1040 line 9b.

Is that big amount?
