Schedule H(p3)

rule
If you file Form 1040, 1040NR, 1040-SS, or 1041 for 2013, remember to attach Schedule H to it. Mail your return, by April 15, 2014, to the address shown in your tax return instructions.

Exceptions.(p3)
rule
If you get an extension of time to file your return, file it with Schedule H by the extended due date. If you are a fiscal year filer, file your return and Schedule H by the due date of your fiscal year return, including extensions.
Note.(p3) If you are a calendar year taxpayer and have no household employees for 2013, you do not have to file Schedule H for 2013.

If you are not required to file a 2013 tax return (for example, because your income is below the amount that requires you to file), you must file Schedule H by itself by April 15, 2014. Complete Schedule H and put it in an envelope with your check or money order. Do not send cash. See the list of filing addresses in these instructions. Mail your completed Schedule H and payment to the address listed for the place where you live. Make your check or money order payable to the United States Treasury for the total household employment taxes due. Enter your name, address, social security number, daytime phone number, and 2013 Schedule H on your check or money order. Household employers that are tax-exempt, such as churches, may also file Schedule H by itself.
