16105: 1040-V - Text Missing or Amounts Differ

Printing Generally

When I view my 1040 voucher, some text or amounts are missing; how do I fix this? The amounts are different from expected; can I change the amount? 


Text or Amounts Missing 

The form is not displaying because it requires a font that is not currently installed on your computer. To fix this issue, go to C:\DrakeYY\FONT folder (substituting C for the drive on which Drake is installed and YY for the year of Drake Tax). Locate the OCRA10.TTF file, right click and choose Install


Note: You may need to install this font on all the computers in your network. Pennsylvania forms also require the OCR-A Font for many of the forms to display correctly. 

Amounts Different

The amount on Form 1040-V flows from:

  • Form 1040, line 37 or Form 1040-SR, line 37* 
  • Form 4868
    • Only if the box Produce 1040-V for extension was marked on the 4868 screen. 
  • Form 1040-X, line 20

This amount cannot be overridden.

Note: the voucher amount includes the estimated tax penalty calculated on Form 2210 that appears on Form 1040, line 24. This amount is already included in the line 23 amount that is displayed. Note that Form 2210 is not always required to be produced, but can be forced on screen 1 under 2210 Options.

*If Wks Penalty is present, the 1040-V will also include the estimated failure to file and/or failure to pay penalties calculated on the worksheet. You can suppress the inclusion of the Wks Penalty results on 1040-V by checking the box Do not carry P & I to 1040V, filing instructions, or letter on the LATE screen.
