How do I understand the 1040 U.S. tax form in terms of an equation instead of a ton of boxes to fill in and instructions to read?
First the 1040 is an exercise in sets:Gross Income - A collection and summation of all your income types.Adjustments - A collection of deductions the tax law allow you to deduct before reaching AGI. (AGI is used as a threshold for another set of deductions).ExemptionsDeductions - A collection of allowed deductions.Taxes - A Collection of Different collected along with Income TaxesCredits - A collection of allowed reductions in tax owed.Net Tax Owed or Refundable - Hopefully Self Explanatory.Now the formulas:[math]Gross Income - Adjustments = Adjusted Gross Income (AGI)[/math][math]AGI - Exemptions - Deductions = Taxable Income[/math][math]Tax Function (Taxable Income ) = Income Tax[/math][math]Taxes - Credits = Net Tax Owed or Refundable[/math]Please Note each set of lines is meant as a means to make collecting and summing the subsidiary information easier.It would probably be much easier to figure out if everyone wanted to pay more taxes instead of less.

How do you fill out line 5 on a 1040EZ tax form?
I suspect the question is related to knowing whether someone can claim you as a dependent, because otherwise line 5 itself is pretty clear.General answer: if you are under 19, or a full-time student under the age of 24, your parents can probably claim you as a dependent. If you are living with someone to whom you are not married and who is providing you with more than half of your support, that person can probably claim you as a dependent. If you are married and filing jointly, your spouse needs to answer the same questions.Note that whether those individuals actually do claim you as a dependent doesn't matter, the question is whether they can. It is not a choice.
How do you figure out if you owe the IRS on form 1040 when the instructions are the same for figuring out your refund?
You compare the amount of tax you owe (line 15) with the amount of tax you've paid (line 18).If the amount you've paid is less than the amount you owe, the difference between the two numbers is the additional tax you owe the IRS.If it is the other way around, then the difference between the two numbers is the refund you are due.
