A tax schedule refers to the variety of forms used to report income taxes to the IRS. Common tax schedules used by taxpayers when filing taxes include:
- Schedule A: tax schedule used to report itemized deductions
- Schedule B: tax schedule used to report interest income and dividends
- Schedule D: tax schedule used to report capital gains and losses
A self employed individual may also need to file a tax schedule to report income earned form a business activity (Schedule C - Profit or Loss From Business), as well as a tax schedule to show how much self-employment taxes is owed (Schedule SE - Self-Employment Tax). Each tax schedule form can be found on the IRS website.

A tax schedule can also refer to a tax rate schedule. The tax schedule shows the cut-off points of earned income and the tax rate applicable to that specific income range (i.e. tax bracket and associated tax rate). A separate tax schedule is used to determine the income tax rate depending upon filing status.
- Schedule X for a single individual
- Schedule Y-1 for those married and filing jointly as well as qualifying widow(er)
- Schedule Y-2 for those married filing separately-
- Schedule Z for those who are filing as the head of a household.
These specific tax schedules can also be found at the IRS website.
