2009 Tax Tables

2009 tax tables 4. 2009 tax tables   Deductions Table of Contents Standard DeductionStandard Deduction for Dependents Itemized DeductionsMedical and Dental Expenses Most taxpayers have a choice of taking a standard deduction or itemizing their deductions. 2009 tax tables You benefit from the standard deduction if your standard deduction is more than the total of your allowable itemized deductions. 2009 tax tables If you have a choice, you should use the method that gives you the lower tax. 2009 tax tables Standard Deduction The standard deduction amount depends on your filing status, whether you are 65 or older or blind, and whether an exemption can be claimed for you by another taxpayer. 2009 tax tables Generally, the standard deduction amounts are adjusted each year for inflation. 2009 tax tables In most cases, you can use Worksheet 4-1 to figure your standard deduction amount. 2009 tax tables Persons not eligible for the standard deduction. 2009 tax tables   Your standard deduction is zero and you should itemize any deductions you have if: You are married and filing a separate return, and your spouse itemizes deductions, You are filing a tax return for a short tax year because of a change in your annual accounting period, or You are a nonresident or dual-status alien during the year. 2009 tax tables You are considered a dual-status alien if you were both a nonresident alien and a resident alien during the year. 2009 tax tables   If you are a nonresident alien who is married to a U. 2009 tax tables S. 2009 tax tables citizen or resident alien at the end of the year, you can choose to be treated as a U. 2009 tax tables S. 2009 tax tables resident. 2009 tax tables See Publication 519, U. 2009 tax tables S. 2009 tax tables Tax Guide for Aliens. 2009 tax tables If you make this choice, you can take the standard deduction. 2009 tax tables Decedent's final return. 2009 tax tables   The amount of the standard deduction for a decedent's final tax return is the same as it would have been had the decedent continued to live. 2009 tax tables However, if the decedent was not 65 or older at the time of death, the higher standard deduction for age cannot be claimed. 2009 tax tables Higher standard deduction for age (65 or older). 2009 tax tables   If you do not itemize deductions, you are entitled to a higher standard deduction if you are age 65 or older at the end of the year. 2009 tax tables You are considered age 65 on the day before your 65th birthday. 2009 tax tables Therefore, you can take a higher standard deduction for 2013 if you were born before January 2, 1949. 2009 tax tables Higher standard deduction for blindness. 2009 tax tables   If you are blind on the last day of the year and you do not itemize deductions, you are entitled to a higher standard deduction. 2009 tax tables You qualify for this benefit if you are totally or partly blind. 2009 tax tables Not totally blind. 2009 tax tables   If you are not totally blind, you must get a certified statement from an eye doctor (ophthalmologist or optometrist) that: You cannot see better than 20/200 in the better eye with glasses or contact lenses, or Your field of vision is not more than 20 degrees. 2009 tax tables   If your eye condition will never improve beyond these limits, the statement should include this fact. 2009 tax tables You must keep the statement in your records. 2009 tax tables   If your vision can be corrected beyond these limits only by contact lenses that you can wear only briefly because of pain, infection, or ulcers, you can take the higher standard deduction for blindness if you otherwise qualify. 2009 tax tables Spouse 65 or older or blind. 2009 tax tables   You can take the higher standard deduction if your spouse is age 65 or older or blind and: You file a joint return, or You file a separate return and can claim an exemption for your spouse because your spouse had no gross income and an exemption for your spouse could not be claimed by another taxpayer. 2009 tax tables    You cannot claim the higher standard deduction for an individual other than yourself and your spouse. 2009 tax tables Example. 2009 tax tables This example illustrates how to determine your standard deduction using Worksheet 4-1. 2009 tax tables Bill and Lisa are filing a joint return for 2013. 2009 tax tables Both are over age 65. 2009 tax tables Neither is blind, and neither can be claimed as a dependent. 2009 tax tables They do not itemize deductions, so they use Worksheet 4-1. 2009 tax tables Because they are married filing jointly, they enter $12,200 on line 1. 2009 tax tables They check the “No” box on line 2, so they also enter $12,200 on line 4. 2009 tax tables Because they are both over age 65, they enter $2,400 ($1,200 × 2) on line 5. 2009 tax tables They enter $14,600 ($12,200 + $2,400) on line 6, so their standard deduction is $14,600. 2009 tax tables Standard Deduction for Dependents The standard deduction for an individual for whom an exemption can be claimed on another person's tax return is generally limited to the greater of: $1,000, or The individual's earned income for the year plus $350 (but not more than the regular standard deduction amount, generally $6,100). 2009 tax tables However, the standard deduction may be higher if the individual is 65 or older or blind. 2009 tax tables If an exemption for you (or your spouse if you are filing jointly) can be claimed on someone else's return, use Worksheet 4-1, if applicable, to determine your standard deduction. 2009 tax tables Worksheet 4-1. 2009 tax tables 2013 Standard Deduction Worksheet Caution. 2009 tax tables If you are married filing separately and your spouse itemizes deductions, or if you are a dual-status alien, do not complete this
