Part I and II
The taxpayers served by the VITA/TCE programs are calendar-year taxpayers. That is, they report income received from January 1 through December 31. They claim allowable deductions paid from January 1 through December 31. If the original return is on file, the program will enter the year automatically.
Form 1040X, Part I, Exemptions (on page 2) is filled out only if the taxpayer is increasing or decreasing the number of exemptions being claimed on line 6d of the return being amended.
Form 1040X, Part II, Presidential Election Campaign Fund (on page 2) is used to make a $3 donation for the Presidential Election Campaign Fund for you (or your spouse) if you did not do so on your original return.
