The Free Online Tax Filing 2011

Free online tax filing 2011 4. Free online tax filing 2011   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. Free online tax filing 2011 You benefit from the standard deduction if your standard deduction is more than the total of your allowable itemized deductions. Free online tax filing 2011 If you have a choice, you should use the method that gives you the lower tax. Free online tax filing 2011 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. Free online tax filing 2011 Generally, the standard deduction amounts are adjusted each year for inflation. Free online tax filing 2011 In most cases, you can use Worksheet 4-1 to figure your standard deduction amount. Free online tax filing 2011 Persons not eligible for the standard deduction. Free online tax filing 2011   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.

Free online tax filing 2011 See Publication 519, U. Free online tax filing 2011 S. Free online tax filing 2011 Tax Guide for Aliens. Free online tax filing 2011 If you make this choice, you can take the standard deduction. Free online tax filing 2011 Decedent's final return. Free online tax filing 2011   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. Free online tax filing 2011 However, if the decedent was not 65 or older at the time of death, the higher standard deduction for age cannot be claimed. Free online tax filing 2011 Higher standard deduction for age (65 or older). Free online tax filing 2011   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. Free online tax filing 2011 You are considered age 65 on the day before your 65th birthday. Free online tax filing 2011 Therefore, you can take a higher standard deduction for 2013 if you were born before January 2, 1949. Free online tax filing 2011 Higher standard deduction for blindness. Free online tax filing 2011   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. Free online tax filing 2011 You qualify for this benefit if you are totally or partly blind. Free online tax filing 2011 Not totally blind.
