Summary of Chapter 7
Determining the Tax Refund or Balance Due
To figure the amount of tax you will owe the IRS or the amount of the tax refund you are due,
you compare your total payments on line 72 (Total Payments) of the tax form 1040 to the total tax shown on line
63 (Total Tax). If you do not owe any other taxes on line 58-62 or claim any of the tax credits on line s 47-55,
your total tax on line 63 is the same as your tax from line 44.
