About Form 1040-V: Payment Voucher

Form 1040-V is a payment voucher used with Forms 1040, 1040A, and 1040EZ. If you have a balance due, send a 1040-V with your payment to speed processing.

Don't send cash for payments to the IRS. If paying by check:

  • Make the check payable to the “U.S. Treasury.”
  • Make sure your name and address are on the check.
  • In the check’s memo section, write these:
    • Form number you’re filing:
      • “2013 Form 1040”
      • “2013 Form 1040A”
      • “2013 Form 1040EZ”
    • Daytime phone number
    • Social Security number (SSN). If married filing jointly, write the first SSN shown on the return.
  • When writing the payment amount on the right side of the check, write the number like this: $XXX.XX. Don’t use a dash or slash.
