Changes to 2008 Forms

Updates to the Form 3800 on 06/03/2009 –– Tax Computation for Children Under Age 14 with Investment Income

We replaced text on Form 3800, on:

  1. Line 6
  2. Line 10

Previous Version

  1. Enter the parent’s taxable income from Form 540, line 19; Form 540A, line 16
  2. Enter the parent’s tax from Form 540, line 20; Form 540A, line 17

Revised Version

  1. Enter the parent’s taxable income from Forms 540/540A, line 19
  2. Enter the parent’s tax from Forms 540/540A, line 20

Reason for the changes
Reference the correct line numbers on Form 540A.

Impact

  1. No tax impact; there isn’t a line 16 on the 540A.
  2. This change will assist the taxpayer in figuring the correct tentative tax based on the parent’s tax rate.
