A tax return is a fundamental document used by all leviers of a tax. In regards to the united States progressive tax system, a tax return is used by the Internal Revenue Service to organize and collect all tax information for businesses and tax-paying individuals in the country.

Tax returns are essential reports that are filed with the Internal Revenue Service or with coordinating state or local tax agencies. A tax return contains vital information used to calculate taxes, particularly the income tax. The complexity of the tax system and the varying rates attached to an individual's particular return warrant a streamlined system. The tax return forms are thus necessary to organize and detail an individual's or businesses particular tax situation.

There are numerous forms used by the Internal Revenue Service, but each document represents an exacting formula or circumstance surrounding an individuals tax rate. Tax returns are thus informative pieces of documentation or the individual's specific tax application. In the more exacting sense, tax returns are reports that document liabilities and payments for an entity.

Included in these returns is an in-depth analysis of the taxpayer's financial information that is used to compute the tax rate. In more common language, tax returns are used to describe the actual monies obtained from the government. The two definitions have become acceptable because the majority of tax returns (the official document that defines one's tax situation) yields a tax refund or funds given by the government to the taxpayer.
