Can you add a note to your tax return

You can add a note but you would have to print and mail your tax return.

The IRS is very specific as to electronically submitted explanations and a "regular" note is not something they allow for electronic filing, unfortunately.

Why not use IRS form 8275 Part II?  It seems designed for "Detailed Explanation".  Instructions say it is "used by taxpayers and tax return preparers to disclose items or positions... that are not otherwise adequately disclosed on a tax return ... to avoid ... accuracy-related penalty ... "

Can you add a note to your tax return

So the answer is, filers GIVE UP the number 1 advantage of using TT - because they want to be “clear” and provide the IRS with additional details??   And if your return is 100’s of pages long?  Go to Kinko’s and kill trees?

 

once again - nonsensical.
