Day 6: Fill out your forms

Are you ready to have some tax fun? Today we get to work on your actual return.

If you use tax software, it will take you through the process, asking you for the information you've collected over the last few days.

Many taxpayers, however, still fill out paper returns. If you're in that camp, be sure to have the instruction book handy so that you don't miss any credits or deductions.

Today's task will probably require more than an hour, but don't be in too big of a hurry. Enter your information carefully to ensure you don't make any common tax-filing mistakes.

When you finish, set it aside. We have one more day to wrap things up.
