Things to remember:
If you have a choice between claiming the standard deduction or itemizing your deductions, claim whichever LOWERS YOUR TAX:
The standard deduction is a fixed dollar amount that reduces the income you’re taxed on. Your standard deduction varies according to your filing status. In 2010, the standard deduction was:
$5,700 if you’re filing as single or married filing separately
$11,400 if married filing jointly or qualifying widow(er)
$8,400 if you qualify to file as head of household
Your standard deduction increases if you’re blind or age 65 or older.
About 2 out of every 3 returns claim the standard deduction.
The “Standard Deduction”
Allows you a deduction regardless of whether you have expenses that qualify for claiming itemized deductions; Eliminates the need to itemize your deductions deductions: such as medical expenses and charitable donations; Lets you avoid having to keep detailed records and receipts of expenses in case you’re audited by the IRS.
Itemized deductions will also reduce your taxable income. Ex: If you’re in the 15% tax bracket, every $1,000 in itemized deductions will eliminate $150 off your tax liability.
You would benefit from itemizing your deductions on your Schedule (A) (1040) if you:
Have itemized deductions that total more than the standard deduction would receive
Had large, medical or dental expenses (Uninsured)
Pay mortgage interest & real estate taxes on the home that you own
Have unreimbursed expenses as an employee that are larger than normal
Had large, uninsured casualty losses; for example: fire, flood, wind or theft
Donated large contributions to charities
Had unreimbursed miscellaneous expenses of a larger nature
However, even if your itemized deductions are less than your standard deduction amount, you still have the opportunity to itemize your deductions rather than claim the standard deduction. A situation that would arise where you might want to do this if the tax benefit of itemizing on your state return is greater than the tax benefit you would lose on your federal return by not claiming the standard deduction. It is a detailed process and we highly suggest seeking the advise of a Tax professional in order to be sure of what to do.
Before 2010, if your adjusted gross income (AGI) from Form 1040, line 38 was more than certain amounts, some of your itemized deductions might be limited. However, for 2010 this limitation was removed, and you could deduct the full amount any itemized deductions.
About 2 out of every 3 returns claim the standard deduction - what happens for 2011 remains to be seen.
