I just realized I forgot to attach Schedule B to my 2015 Form 1040 that I filed in April. What should I do now?

You don’t have to file an amended return or contact the IRS. The IRS will contact you by mail and ask that you send the schedule. The IRS letter will have instructions on where to mail it.

Exemption

A fixed deduction allowed to every taxpayer, except those who may be claimed as a dependent by another person. Extra exemption deductions are allowed for a spouse on a joint return and for each qualifying dependent. A deduction of $3,400 is allowed for each exemption claimed on 2007 returns, but the deduction is phased out for certain high income individuals.
