Total income or AGI? If you were a W-2 employee your gross income would be in box 1 of your W-2(s). Your AGI is on your 2017 tax return:
Your 2017 tax return shows your 2016 Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) If you filed a joint return then the AGI is the same for each of you.
Form 1040EZ line 4
Form 1040A line 21
Form 1040 line 37
"Total Income", for IRS purposes is:
- Line 22 of form 1040
- Line 15 of form 1040A
- Line 4 of form 1040EZ
Only on form 1040EZ, are tour "Total Income" and your "Adjusted Gross Income: the same thing.
So, it somewhat depends on why do you need to know your total income.
