What is Form 1040-V?

 

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

Tips On Filling Out 1040-V

Don’t send cash for payments to the IRS. If you’re paying by check or money order:

  1. Make the check or money order payable to the “U.S. Treasury.”
  2. Make sure your name and address are on the check or money order.
  3. In the check or money order’s memo section, write these:
    1. Form number you’re filing.
    2. Your daytime phone number
    3. Your Social Security number (SSN), or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN). If you’re filing married filing jointly, write the first SSN shown on the return.
  4. 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.

You can mail your Form 1040-V, tax return, and payment (not cash) to the appropriate address shown on the back but do not staple or otherwise attach the Form 1040-V to your return.
