2009 turbo tax 20. 2009 turbo tax   Standard Deduction Table of Contents What's New Introduction Standard Deduction Amount Standard Deduction for Dependents Who Should ItemizeWhen to itemize. 2009 turbo tax Married persons who filed separate returns. 2009 turbo tax What's New Standard deduction increased. 2009 turbo tax  The standard deduction for some taxpayers who do not itemize their deductions on Schedule A (Form 1040) is higher for 2013 than it was for 2012. 2009 turbo tax The amount depends on your filing status. 2009 turbo tax You can use the 2013 Standard Deduction Tables in this chapter to figure your standard deduction. 2009 turbo tax Introduction This chapter discusses the following topics. 2009 turbo tax How to figure the amount of your standard deduction. 2009 turbo tax The standard deduction for dependents. 2009 turbo tax Who should itemize deductions. 2009 turbo tax Most taxpayers have a choice of either taking a standard deduction or itemizing their deductions. 2009 turbo tax If you have a choice, you can use the method that gives you the lower tax. 2009 turbo tax The standard deduction is a dollar amount that reduces your taxable income. 2009 turbo tax It is a benefit that eliminates the need for many taxpayers to itemize actual deductions, such as medical expenses, charitable contributions, and taxes, on Schedule A (Form 1040). 2009 turbo tax The standard deduction is higher for taxpayers who: Are 65 or older, or Are blind. 2009 turbo tax You benefit from the standard deduction if your standard deduction is more than the total of your allowable itemized deductions. 2009 turbo tax Persons not eligible for the standard deduction. 2009 turbo tax   Your standard deduction is zero and you should itemize any deductions you have if: Your filing status is married filing separately, and your spouse itemizes deductions on his or her return, 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 turbo tax You are considered a dual-status alien if you were both a nonresident and resident alien during the year. 2009 turbo tax Note. 2009 turbo tax If you are a nonresident alien who is married to a U. 2009 turbo tax S. 2009 turbo tax citizen or resident alien at the end of the year, you can choose to be treated as a U. 2009 turbo tax S. 2009 turbo tax resident. 2009 turbo tax (See Publication 519, U. 2009 turbo tax S. 2009 turbo tax Tax Guide for Aliens. 2009 turbo tax ) If you make this choice, you can take the standard deduction. 2009 turbo tax If an exemption for you can be claimed on another person's return (such as your parents' return), your standard deduction may be limited. 2009 turbo tax See Standard Deduction for Dependents, later. 2009 turbo tax Standard Deduction Amount 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 turbo tax Generally, the standard deduction amounts are adjusted each year for inflation. 2009 turbo tax The standard deduction amounts for most people are shown in Table 20-1. 2009 turbo tax Decedent's final return. 2009 turbo tax   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 turbo tax However, if the decedent was not 65 or older at the time of death, the higher standard deduction for age cannot be claimed. 2009 turbo tax Higher Standard Deduction for Age (65 or Older) If you are age 65 or older on the last day of the year and do not itemize deductions, you are entitled to a higher standard deduction. 2009 turbo tax You are considered 65 on the day before your 65th birthday. 2009 turbo tax Therefore, you can take a higher standard deduction for 2013 if you were born before January 2, 1949. 2009 turbo tax Use Table 20-2 to figure the standard deduction amount. 2009 turbo tax Higher Standard Deduction for Blindness 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 turbo tax Not totally blind. 2009 turbo tax   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 20 degrees or less. 2009 turbo tax   If your eye condition is not likely to improve beyond these limits, the statement should include this fact. 2009 turbo tax You must keep the statement in your records. 2009 turbo tax   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 turbo tax Spouse 65 or Older or Blind 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 cannot be claimed as a dependent by another taxpayer. 2009 turbo tax You cannot claim the higher standard deduction for an individual other than yourself and your spouse. 2009 turbo tax Examples The following examples illustrate how to determine your standard deduction using Tables 20-1 and 20-2. 2009 turbo tax Example 1. 2009 turbo tax Larry, 46, and Donna, 33, are filing a joint return for 2013. 2009 turbo tax Neither is blind, and neither can be claimed as a dependent. 2009 turbo tax They decide not to itemize their deductions. 2009 turbo tax They use Table 20-1. 2009 turbo tax Their standard deduction is $12,200. 2009 turbo tax Example 2. 2009 turbo tax The facts are the same as in Example 1 except that Larry is blind at the end of 2013. 2009 turbo tax Larry and Donna use Table 20-2. 2009 turbo tax Their standard deduction is $13,400. 2009 turbo tax Example 3. 2009 turbo tax Bill and Lisa are filing a joint return for 2013. 2009 turbo tax Both are over age 65. 2009 turbo tax Neither is blind, and neither can be claimed as a dependent. 2009 turbo tax If they do not itemize deductions, they use Table 20-2. 2009 turbo tax Their standard deduction is $14,600. 2009 turbo tax Standard Deduction for Dependents The standard deduction for an individual who can be claimed as a dependent 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 turbo tax However, if the individual is 65 or older or blind, the standard deduction may be higher. 2009 turbo tax If you (or your spouse, if filing jointly) can be claimed as a dependent on someone else's return, use Table 20-3 to determine your standard deduction. 2009 turbo tax Earned income defined. 2009 turbo tax   Earned income is salaries, wages, tips, professional fees, and other amounts received as pay for work you actually perform. 2009 turbo tax    For purposes of the standard deduction, earned income also includes any part of a scholarship or fellowship grant that you must include in your gross income. 2009 turbo tax See Scholarships and fellowships in chapter 12 for more information on what qualifies as a scholarship or fellowship grant. 2009 turbo tax Example 1. 2009 turbo tax Michael is single. 2009 turbo tax His parents can claim an exemption for him on their 2013 tax return. 2009 turbo tax He has interest income of $780 and wages of $150. 2009 turbo tax He has no itemized deductions. 2009 turbo tax Michael uses Table 20-3 to find his standard deduction. 2009 turbo tax He enters $150 (his earned income) on line 1, $500 ($150 + $350) on line 3, $1,000 (the larger of $500 and $1,000) on line 5, and $6,100 on line 6. 2009 turbo tax His standard deduction, on line 7a, is $1,000 (the smaller of $1,000 and $6,100). 2009 turbo tax Example 2. 2009 turbo tax Joe, a 22-year-old full-time college student, can be claimed as a dependent on his parents' 2013 tax return. 2009 turbo tax Joe is married and files a separate return. 2009 turbo tax His wife does not itemize deductions on her separate return. 2009 turbo tax Joe has $1,500 in interest income and wages of $3,800. 2009 turbo tax He has no itemized deductions. 2009 turbo tax Joe finds his standard deduction by using Table 20-3. 2009 turbo tax He enters his earned income, $3,800 on line 1. 2009 turbo tax He adds lines 1 and 2 and enters $4,150 on line 3. 2009 turbo tax On line 5, he enters $4,150, the larger of lines 3 and 4. 2009 turbo tax Because Joe is married filing a separate return, he enters $6,100 on line 6. 2009 turbo tax On line 7a he enters $4,150 as his standard deduction because it is smaller than $6,100, the amount on line 6. 2009 turbo tax Example 3. 2009 turbo tax Amy, who is single, can be claimed as a dependent on her parents' 2013 tax return. 2009 turbo tax She is 18 years old and blind. 2009 turbo tax She has interest income of $1,300 and wages of $2,900. 2009 turbo tax She has no itemized deductions. 2009 turbo tax Amy uses Table 20-3 to find her standard deduction. 2009 turbo tax She enters her wages of $2,900 on line 1. 2009 turbo tax She adds lines 1 and 2 and enters $3,250 on line 3. 2009 turbo tax On line 5, she enters $3,250, the larger of lines 3 and 4. 2009 turbo tax Because she is single, Amy enters $6,100 on line 6. 2009 turbo tax She enters $3,250 on line 7a. 2009 turbo tax This is the smaller of the amounts on lines 5 and 6. 2009 turbo tax Because she checked one box in the top part of the worksheet, she enters $1,500 on line 7b. 2009 turbo tax She then adds the amounts on lines 7a and 7b and enters her standard deduction of $4,750 on line 7c. 2009 turbo tax Example 4. 2009 turbo tax Ed is single. 2009 turbo tax His parents can claim an exemption for him on their 2013 tax return. 2009 turbo tax He has wages of $7,000, interest income of $500, and a business loss of $3,000. 2009 turbo tax He has no itemized deductions. 2009 turbo tax Ed uses Table 20-3 to figure his standard deduction. 2009 turbo tax He enters $4,000 ($7,000 - $3,000) on line 1. 2009 turbo tax He adds lines 1 and 2 and enters $4,350 on line 3. 2009 turbo tax On line 5 he enters $4,350, the larger of lines 3 and 4. 2009 turbo tax Because he is single, Ed enters $6,100 on line 6. 2009 turbo tax On line 7a he enters $4,350 as his standard deduction because it is smaller than $6,100, the amount on line 6. 2009 turbo tax Who Should Itemize You should itemize deductions if your total deductions are more than the standard deduction amount. 2009 turbo tax Also, you should itemize if you do not qualify for the standard deduction, as discussed earlier under Persons not eligible for the standard deduction . 2009 turbo tax You should first figure your itemized deductions and compare that amount to your standard deduction to make sure you are using the method that gives you the greater benefit. 2009 turbo tax You may be subject to a limit on some of your itemized deductions if your adjusted gross income is more than: $250,000 if single ($275,000 if head of household, $300,000 if married filing jointly or qualifying widow(er); or $150,000 if married filing separately). 2009 turbo tax See chapter 29 or the instructions for Schedule A (Form 1040) for more information on figuring the correct amount of your itemized deductions. 2009 turbo tax When to itemize. 2009 turbo tax   You may benefit from itemizing your deductions on Schedule A (Form 1040) if you: Do not qualify for the standard deduction, or the amount you can claim is limited, Had large uninsured medical and dental expenses during the year, Paid interest and taxes on your home, Had large unreimbursed employee business expenses or other miscellaneous deductions, Had large uninsured casualty or theft losses, Made large contributions to qualified charities, or Have total itemized deductions that are more than the standard deduction to which you otherwise are entitled. 2009 turbo tax These deductions are explained in chapters 21–28. 2009 turbo tax    If you decide to itemize your deductions, complete Schedule A and attach it to your Form 1040. 2009 turbo tax Enter the amount from Schedule A, line 29, on Form 1040, line 40. 2009 turbo tax Electing to itemize for state tax or other purposes. 2009 turbo tax   Even if your itemized deductions are less than your standard deduction, you can elect to itemize deductions on your federal return rather than take the standard deduction. 2009 turbo tax You may want to do this if, for example, the tax benefit of itemizing your deductions on your state tax return is greater than the tax benefit you lose on your federal return by not taking the standard deduction. 2009 turbo tax To make this election, you must check the box on line 30 of Schedule A. 2009 turbo tax Changing your mind. 2009 turbo tax   If you do not itemize your deductions and later find that you should have itemized — or if you itemize your deductions and later find you should not have — you can change your return by filing Form 1040X, Amended U. 2009 turbo tax S. 2009 turbo tax Individual Income Tax Return. 2009 turbo tax See Amended Returns and Claims for Refund in chapter 1 for more information on amended returns. 2009 turbo tax Married persons who filed separate returns. 2009 turbo tax   You can change methods of taking deductions only if you and your spouse both make the same changes. 2009 turbo tax Both of you must file a consent to assessment for any additional tax either one may owe as a result of the change. 2009 turbo tax    You and your spouse can use the method that gives you the lower total tax, even though one of you may pay more tax than you would have paid by using the other method. 2009 turbo tax You both must use the same method of claiming deductions. 2009 turbo tax If one itemizes deductions, the other should itemize because he or she will not qualify for the standard deduction. 2009 turbo tax See Persons not eligible for the standard deduction , earlier. 2009 turbo tax 2013 Standard Deduction Tables If you are married filing a separate return and your spouse itemizes deductions, or if you are a dual-status alien, you cannot take the standard deduction even if you were born before January 2, 1949, or
