Creating a Tax Return

When you have all the information necessary for the creation of your tax return, you can find all the tax forms you need on the Internet. The IRS provides all the tax forms and accompanying instructions on its website, available for downloading; all the state revenue agencies provide their tax forms online as well. Determine which tax forms you need. The easiest way to do this is to look at last year's tax return. If this is the first year for your company's tax return, start with the main tax form for your company as described earlier in this chapter. As you follow along and read the instructions, you will find out which other tax forms you need.
