Is the "Occupation or Job Title" field supposed to be my occupation from 2020? Or my current one? (This is in the "Your Personal Info" section in "My Info".)

Is the "Occupation or Job Title" field supposed to be my occupation from 2020? Or my current one? (This is in the "Your Personal Info" section in "My Info".)

Enter your "occupation" as of 12/31/20. 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
