Government Official Suggests Tweaks to Form 1040

Via Journal of Accountancy

The Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) has issued a report suggesting ways that Form 1040 could be improved to make it easier for taxpayers to avoid common errors.

The TIGTA analyzed the approximately 7 million math error notices the IRS sends out annually to narrow down the list to those that could partly be attributed to confusing wording or design of the forms.

The suggestions include better labeling of certain lines and the use of red ink to highlight important features.
