Attempting to finish a tax take-home test..is there something out there to help me?
I'm taking a free course through Liberty Tax and I have a small take-home test. I asked to do it for extra experience, but I want to make sure I do a decent job. I finished a 10 week course and I am going back for a rapid class in Jan., just to reinforce what I learned.
What I have noticed is that I usually do 85% of the problem correctly, but I miss one teeny little thing which throws all of my numbers off...or I miss one of the several forms, and obviously that throws me off too. My teacher says I am doing well, but I just want to do this properly.
Is there a program out there that can kind of guide me? You know..just fill me in on what forms to use or something? I don't want answers, I still want to do the problem on my own so that I learn. I just want something to help me reinforce remembering certain rules/forms. The more I do it, the better I get and the less I need help, per se.

Have you thought of going to the www.irs.gov website and using the search box for 1040 and choose the instructions and got to page 11 Where To Report Certain Items From 2009 Forms W-2, 1098, and 1099
If any federal income tax withheld is shown on these forms, include the tax withheld on Form 1040, line 61. If you itemize your deductions and any
state or local income tax withheld is shown on these forms, include the tax withheld on Schedule A, line 5, unless you elect to deduct state and local
general sales taxes.
Or use the search box for link and learn taxes
