My daughter had her first job this year and she had taxes withheld. She also has dividend earnings. I'm sure she doesn't owe anything but I'm not sure what forms I have to fill out for her. She has 3700 in earnings, 24 in interest, Ordinary dividends (1099-DIV box 1) of 27, Total capital gains distributions (1099-DIV box 2a) of 183 and Qulaified 5-year gain (1099-Div box 2c) of 48. This is well below the 1500 limit but I have no idea what to do with boxes 2a and 2c.

Do we have to do a 1040 w/schedule D or can she do a 1040A? It looks like you can't do a 1040EZ if you have dividends. It's kinda intimidating that her first tax return EVER would need to be a 1040.

Thanks for the assist.
