Need to print expected filing but don't want to file yet. Can I do this?

Need to print expected filing but don't want to file yet. Can I do this?

There are a couple of things you can do.

 

You can view the Form 1040  and schedules 1-3 for free at any time during preparation prior to paying and filing.  For printing privileges, however, see the second option I offer you below.

 

  Here's how to do a preview for free without printing:

 

  • Open your return, and in the left menu column, choose TAX TOOLS, then choose TOOLS.
  • In the Tools window, choose View Tax Summary.
  • When the Tax Summary opens, look in the left menu column and choose Preview My 1040.
  • That will show you the Form 1040 and schedules 1-3.

Or you can pay in advance to view/print the Form 1040 and all forms and any worksheets prior to filing.  Here's how:

 

  • Open your return, and in the left menu column, choose Tax Tools, then Print Center.
  • Then choose "Print/save/preview this year's return."
  • On the next screen choose to "Pay now".
  • The next screen should be an Order Summary.  Review that, and if all is OK, click Continue.
  • It should then prompt you for payment by credit or debit card.  The screen only says "credit card", but it will take a debit card.

NOTE:  If it should offer you the option to "pay later" out of the Federal refund, that can't be used for this purpose.  You will need to pay now by credit/debit card in order to download/print prior to filing.

Thank you, I am not seeing the schedule C though.

If it's not in the free Preview (which may only show the 1040 and Schedules 1-3), then you'll have to pay in advance first at the Print Center and then download/view a PDF.
