You do not need to mark any of the boxes in the columns in Blocks B or C, which are in the middle of the page.
Report the total amount of salary income that you received during the entire reporting period, not just the amount that you received in a calendar year.
Rather than writing “salary,” you may write another description that more accurately describes the type of income you received.
If you received a bonus, you may write the phrase “salary and bonus” and provide the combined amount of your salary and bonus.
Do not combine salary with forms of compensation other than a cash bonus. For example, do not combine salary with income in the form of stock options, and do not combine salary with deferred compensation.
While you do not report salary received as federal government employee, you do report income received as a federal government contractor.
You do need to report your salary if you work for a state or local government.
Do not report wages or salary that a minor or dependent child received.
