All You Wondered About Schedule 1 Copy!

The IRS E-filing watermark!

The marking is so small, so faint- yet, it makes all the difference. Without the watermark stamp on your schedule 1 copy, that piece of paper doesn’t have any value.

And it is powerful. You see, the stamped Schedule 1 is your proof that you filed and paid your annual heavy vehicle use tax for all of the vehicles listed on the schedule. Without this proof, you cannot renew your tags at the DMV, or renew your registration for IFTA, IRP or UCR, and of course, you have no proof that you paid your taxes either, which will certainly cause trouble if you are ever audited.

Moreover, it is always a good idea to carry a copy of this doc. in your glove box, especially if you traverse international borders (i.e. to Canada and back). Border patrol will check that you have a current stamped Schedule 1 before allowing you back in the United States.

Whenever you need it, and wherever you are, access to your schedule 1 copy through your registered account will always be appreciated.

The Elusive E-filing Watermark:

So here’s the first, the most important thing to note when receiving a Schedule 1: does it have the IRS E-filing watermark? The watermark will be very faintly stamped in the middle of your Schedule 1, and beneath it, you’ll see the date the IRS accepted your return.

Without this stamp, the return is not valid.
