File 2014 Taxes

File 2014 taxes 4. File 2014 taxes   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. File 2014 taxes You benefit from the standard deduction if your standard deduction is more than the total of your allowable itemized deductions. File 2014 taxes If you have a choice, you should use the method that gives you the lower tax. File 2014 taxes 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. File 2014 taxes Generally, the standard deduction amounts are adjusted each year for inflation. File 2014 taxes In most cases, you can use Worksheet 4-1 to figure your standard deduction amount. File 2014 taxes Persons not eligible for the standard deduction. File 2014 taxes   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. File 2014 taxes You are considered a dual-status alien if you were both a nonresident alien and a resident alien during the year. File 2014 taxes   If you are a nonresident alien who is married to a U. File 2014 taxes S. File 2014 taxes citizen or resident alien at the end of the year, you can choose to be treated as a U. File 2014 taxes S. File 2014 taxes resident. File 2014 taxes See Publication 519, U. File 2014 taxes S. File 2014 taxes Tax Guide for Aliens. File 2014 taxes If you make this choice, you can take the standard deduction. File 2014 taxes Decedent's final return. File 2014 taxes   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. File 2014 taxes However, if the decedent was not 65 or older at the time of death, the higher standard deduction for age cannot be claimed. File 2014 taxes Higher standard deduction for age (65 or older). File 2014 taxes   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. File 2014 taxes You are considered age 65 on the day before your 65th birthday. File 2014 taxes Therefore, you can take a higher standard deduction for 2013 if you were born before January 2, 1949. File 2014 taxes Higher standard deduction for blindness. File 2014 taxes   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. File 2014 taxes You qualify for this benefit if you are totally or partly blind. File 2014 taxes Not totally blind. File 2014 taxes   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. File 2014 taxes   If your eye condition will never improve beyond these limits, the statement should include this fact. File 2014 taxes You must keep the statement in your records. File 2014 taxes   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. File 2014 taxes Spouse 65 or older or blind. File 2014 taxes   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. File 2014 taxes    You cannot claim the higher standard deduction for an individual other than yourself and your spouse. File 2014 taxes Example. File 2014 taxes This example illustrates how to determine your standard deduction using Worksheet 4-1. File 2014 taxes Bill and Lisa are filing a joint return for 2013. File 2014 taxes Both are over age 65. File 2014 taxes Neither is blind, and neither can be claimed as a dependent. File 2014 taxes They do not itemize deductions, so they use Worksheet 4-1. File 2014 taxes Because they are married filing jointly, they enter $12,200 on line 1. File 2014 taxes They check the “No” box on line 2, so they also enter $12,200 on line 4. File 2014 taxes Because they are both over age 65, they enter $2,400 ($1,200 × 2) on line 5. File 2014 taxes They enter $14,600 ($12,200 + $2,400) on line 6, so their standard deduction is $14,600. File 2014 taxes 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). File 2014 taxes However, the standard deduction may be higher if the individual is 65 or older or blind. File 2014 taxes 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. File 2014 taxes Worksheet 4-1. File 2014 taxes 2013 Standard Deduction Worksheet Caution. File 2014 taxes If you are married filing separately and your spouse itemizes deductions, or if you are a dual-status alien, do not complete this worksheet.
