Checklists



Purpose: Tax checklists are used to address the issues, areas, or topics related to a specific tax form, used by preparers and reviewers to ensure compliance with IRS reporting and documentation rules, and assist practitioners with identifying any missed reporting issues, planning opportunities and potential exam or audit risks on a tax return.

The checklists below are provided in both Word and fillable PDF format.

Note that some of our checklists were recently updated due to an error in the fillable form fields. Please ensure that you have the most recent versions downloaded.
