Adjusted Gross Income
Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) is defined as gross income minus adjustments to income. We suggest you refer to your 2016 federal income tax return to get a quick estimate of your 2017 AGI. On your 2016 return, please refer to:
- Line 4 if you filed a Form 1040EZ.
- Line 21 if you filed a Form 1040A.
- Line 37 if you filed a Form 1040.
If you are filing using the Married Filing Jointly filing status, the $66,000 AGI limitation applies to the AGI for both of you combined. This AGI will appear on your return.
To e-file your federal tax return, you must verify your identity with your AGI or your self-select PIN from your 2016 tax return.
