Hey! I'm Carter, I'm a CPA and can help you with this.

Topic No 752 covers this, https://www.irs.gov/taxtopics/tc752

  • Type all entries using black ink and, if possible, in a 12-point Courier font. Entries are read by machine. Handwritten, script, or italicized fonts and entries made in other than black ink can't be read.

So, they can be handwritten, but need to be in black ink.

Let me know if you need anything else. If not, please leave a rating. Thanks!
