Recommended Posts

I just completed all the taxes and now going to print and read them. Turbotax says the tax filing papers are 39 pages long, and with worksheets it totals 102 pages.

Damn, my UK taxes were a couple of pages and that was it.

The shortest form is one page. The longest form is 3 pages. Obviously if you have worksheets that increases the number of pages. I don't know of any US tax form that is anywhere close to 39 pages. Maybe if you include the written instructions it is that many pages. There is nothing difficult about filing taxes, especially if you are using an online service. I don't use TurboTax so I am not sure what it is telling you to print, but it is certainly more than just the tax return if it says it is 39 pages (or 102!)

Turbo Tax prints the worksheets, which you don't normally submit with a tax return, but are more for your own reference, especially if you get audited.

They might also be printing additional forms that you would attach, depending on how many of these you have, this would up the numbers.


3/2/18  E-filed N-400 under 5 year rule

3/26/18 Biometrics

7/2019-12/2019 (Yes, 16- 21 months) Estimated time to interview MSP office.

TurboTax generates a lot of extra pages that are not part of the tax return that is filed (or sent to USCIS for immigration purposes). The Form 1040 is first. A good way to know the rest that are part of the actual return is look at the upper right corner. If you find the words "Attachment Sequence No. XX", it is part of the return. It will be on the first page of a form, but a second page of the form will merely have Page 2. That is a way to order your pages if you were submitting a paper return. You line them up numerically by the Attachment Sequence Number.

If it says worksheet or summary or TurboTax, it is not part of the filing return.

Everybody will have different forms in their return based on their income. Some will only have a 1040 or 1040A. Some will have additional Schedules or Forms. As an example, mine has:

(Pages) Form Name

(2) Form 1040

(1) Schedule A -Itemized Deductions

(1) Schedule B -Interest and Dividends

(2) Schedule C - Profit or Loss From Business

(2) Schedule D- Capital Gains and Losses

(1) Schedule SE - Self Employment Tax

(3) Form 8938 -Statement of Specified Foreign Financial Assets

(2) Form 4562 -Depreciation and Amortization

That's a fairly complicated return, but only 14 pages for filing purposes.
