Auto-Fill Your 1040 from Household Budget

Wouldn’t it be great if our 1040 federal tax form could be auto-filled directly from our household budget? This would save us all time and aggravation, not to mention error.  Thanks to IRS Success, this will be available for the 2022 Tax Year.


IRS Success has created an Excel-based Household Budget Template that feeds directly into the 1040.   Here’s how it works:


  1. Customers enter dollar amounts in the following fields: Monthly Income and Interest
  2. Customers enter dollar amounts in pre-established monthly expenses categories

[New categories can be added as needed]

  1. Monthly expenses are auto-summed
  2. Monthly balances are auto-summed

The Household Budget is linked to Federal Tax Form 1040 in the same Excel spreadsheet


  1. Form 1040 wages, salaries, tips, etc. are auto-generated
  2. Form 1040 taxable interest is auto-generated
  3. Form 1040 other income and taxable amounts are auto-generated
  4. Form 1040 Total Income is auto-summed

Other products coming in 2022 include:


  • Schedule A: Itemized Deductions
  • Schedule B: Interest and Ordinary Dividends
  • Schedule C: Profit or Loss from Business
  • Schedule D: Capital Gains and Losses (along with its worksheet)
  • Schedule E: Supplemental Income and Loss
  • Schedule F: Profit or Loss from Farming
  • Schedule SE: Self-Employment Tax


All of the worksheets included in the 1040 Excel spreadsheet are password-protected, and all of the formulas are automated and hidden. However, customers can add new worksheets to the file or create links to other spreadsheets.
