Even if the itemized deduction is more beneficial to you, you can select and request one of the federal standard deduction amounts below based on your tax return for the given tax year. Even if you don't have other qualifying tax deductions or credits, the IRS allows most people to apply for the standard deduction with no questions asked. That's because the IRS adjusts a number of tax provisions, including the standard deduction, every year to account for inflation. We'll select the right deduction for your tax situation based on your answers to some simple tax questions.
Property taxes, charitable donations, and state income or sales taxes may also be deductible if itemized.
