Tax Schedules- Everything you need to know

Annual tax returns filed to the IRS are accompanied by a tax schedule. A *tax schedule* is a form used when you have certain types of income or deductions. These include significant amounts of interest income, mortgage interest or charitable contributions.
Deductions like the tax refund schedule can be checked on the Where’s My Refund? <www.irs.gov/refunds> tool within 24 hours if you submit your tax return electronically and within 3 weeks if filed by mail. If you don’t receive your refund in 21 days, your tax return might be incomplete or incorrect. The IRS may send you instructions through the mail if it needs additional information in order to process your return.
Other deductions can be figured using the Schedule A (Form 1040 or 1040-SR) <www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f1040sa.pdf>. For individual taxpayers, Schedule A is used in conjunction with Form 1040 <www.hrblock.com/tax-center/irs/forms/form-1040/> to report itemized deductions. If you choose to claim itemized deductions instead of the standard deduction, you would use Schedule A to list your deductions. Your itemized total is then subtracted from your taxable income.
These deductions are dependant n the amount of tax filed. The Tax rate schedule is *rate* sheet used by individual or corporate taxpayers to determine their estimated taxes due.
