Form 3531

Hey so I received this form. I want to make sure everything is right because one thing I know you do not want to mess with the IRS LOL. They checked box 1, 6, & 7. For box 6 it shows that I need to attach my W2 to support one of my entry, which is doable. My confusion is box 7. Where is says explain the source of earned income or wages used to compute your earned income credit and attach you documents. So is 6 & 7 the same? They just want my W2 form or do they want an actual explanation? Also, next to the box 1 on my actual 1040, there is a red line marked and they put i believe it reads as 1A/1Z. what do they mean by that? Thank you so much for helping!

This feature is pending. Thanks for your patience.

If your only earned income is from W-2 just send the W-2 with a statement that that is your only earned income.
