Enter your "occupation" as of 12/31/16, Retired or if you have more than one occupation, enter your main occupation. (The one you spend most of your time doing.)

The IRS requires we ask about your occupation. 

An occupation is what you do for work, but if you’re retired, a student or a stay-at-home parent, that can be your occupation as well.
 
Some examples that can help you answer this question are listed below:
  • Retired
  • Student
  • Teacher
  • Cashier
  • Truck driver
  • Hair stylist
  • Unemployed
