A Little Tax Day Humor

april 15

tax day

Found this gem in the 2013 Form 1040 Instructions for Line 6c – Dependents:

“A qualifying child is a child who is…under age 19 at the end of 2013 and younger than you

    - page 17 of 207

Even though it should be, the page reference is not a typo – the Instructions for Form 1040 are 207 pages long this year, and they do not include the Instructions for various Forms and Schedules which a taxpayer may be required to file along with their Form 1040.
