Filing Requirements


Intake and Interview Process — Filing Requirements

Use Form 13614-C, Intake/Interview & Quality Review Sheet to engage your taxpayer in preparing an accurate return. To assure quality and accuracy on each return, use the intake and interview sheet as a starting point for a comprehensive interaction with the taxpayer, in combination with all the source documents provided by the taxpayer.

Confirm each item on the intake and interview sheet to make sure you and the taxpayer have considered all the necessary information. Ensure that all questions and issues have been addressed. If items are incorrect or incomplete, revisit the issue and make corrections to the return, as needed.

To ensure accurate reporting of filing status, verify the taxpayer's marital status. Using Publications 4012, Volunteer Resource Guide, and/or Publication 17, confirm that the appropriate decision tree, interview tips, and informational charts were used to determine the filing status.
