Question

How do I generate estimate vouchers that will fit in the IRS-provided envelopes?

Answer

  1. Choose Setup > 1040 Individual.
  2. Click the Other Return Options button.
  3. Mark the Print Form 1040-ES in OCR-A format checkbox on the Return Presentation tab.
  4. Mark the Using IRS envelopes with window right-justified checkbox, if applicable.
  5. Click OK twice to close the Other Return Options dialog and the 1040 Product Information dialog.

The application produces the vouchers in OCR-A format when printed.

Note: This option applies to all 1040 clients and takes immediate effect on any client subsequently accessed.
