Same way you prepare a complex return, just with less information.

If youre trying to file a return for someone with only SS income, you dont need to, IRS will issue economic relief money to them automatically.

@IntuitAustin 

Is there any way you can add "simple return" to the filter so these posts are bleeped?

These webinars should be your first port of call.  Try the one called "Preparing a Simple 1040 in ProSeries Professional".

Who knows? 😆

But you're right.  It's not just these "simple return" questions.  Can't even count the number of questions that are flooding this place about stimulus payment, direct deposit, etc., etc., etc.

@IRonMaN  I  think that used to be a punchline on Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In in the 70's--Arte Johnson delivered the line the best in his German helmet!

Verrrrry interesting. 

Sorry, but Intuit doesn't supply German helmets so I did the best I could.

You ARE right, my bad.  When they swabbed me last night, must have poked out  part of my memory!
