Schedule D - Viewing Tax Worksheet

If there is an amount on Line 18 (from the 28% Rate Gain Worksheet) or Line 19 (from the Unrecaptured Section 1250 Gain Worksheet) of Schedule D (Form 1040) Capital Gains and Losses, according to the IRS, the tax is calculated on the Schedule D Tax Worksheet instead of the Qualified Dividends and Capital Gain Tax Worksheet.

The TaxAct program does all of this work for you based on the data you enter in the Q&A, but you can view the worksheet if you want to.  To view the calculation on the Schedule D Tax Worksheet, you need to view the print PDF. If you need help, go to our Printing Your Return and Individual Forms FAQ.

The print PDF of the Schedule D Tax Worksheet will show the calculation of the tax which flows to line 6 on Form 1040, or line 14 on Form 1040-NR.
