What is form 1040-v

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.

  • In the check’s memo section, write these:
  •  Form number you’re filing:
  •  “2017 Form 1040”
  • “2017 Form 1040”
  • “2017 Form 1040”
    • Your daytime phone number
    • Your Social Security number (SSN). If you’re filing 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.
