Instructions for filling out Form 1040A can be downloaded from the Internal Revenue Service's website. In addition, TurboTax and H&R Block both provide instructions and general guidelines for filling out the 1040A on their websites, including explanations of when use of the form is appropriate.

Form 1040A, which is an abbreviated version of the standard 1040 tax filing form, is appropriate for taxpayers whose income derives from wages or salaries, interest and dividends, capital gains, unemployment, and pensions, annuities or Social Security, as TurboTax explains. Taxpayers who receive income from business ownership or who want to itemize deductions cannot use Form 1040A.
