How to Allocate Student and Spouse Income Earned from Working

Previous

If you are married and use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool, your and your spouse’s total income earned from working is transferred from the IRS. You are required to enter each spouse’s portion of the transferred amount.

If you and your spouse filed a 1040 tax return, enter each spouse’s portion of IRS Form 1040 – Lines: 7 + 12 + 18*.

*Lines 12 and 18 are for tax filers who are self-employed.

If you and your spouse filed a 1040A or 1040EZ tax return, enter each spouse’s portion of IRS Form 1040A – Line: 7 or IRS Form 1040EZ – Line: 1.

Note: You may estimate each spouse’s income earned from working as long as the total equals the amount that transferred from the IRS.
