What would you like to do?
Is it good to itemise deductions on tax returns and when can an individual itemise the deductions?
ON a federal return the standard deduction for 2005 is $ 5,000.00 and single, $10,000 married filing joint and $7,300.00 for head of household. You would have to have more this for it to help. State vary by states. So, if your intemized deductions are more than the base amount for the year given to anyone, it is better to do so.

Thanks for the feedback!
It is entirely situational and depends on many, many factors...like if your an employee or not (W-2 or 1099). What your employer provides and if you get reimbursed at all (and… how) for it...many industries have fairly common guidelines that make certain things deductible, where others have others. Frankly, most "standard" employees, just going in and doing a job and getting paid don't have any unreimbursed work expenses that would qualify. The most common would be clothing, like a uniform, that is required and cannot be worn otherwise (a suit wouldn't qualify, nor would jeans...even if only used at work).
No, I'm afraid it is not. Just like a hot tub is not deductible because someone has back aches. These items are all seen the same way by the IRS and tax law.
No, if anything you would OWE a gift tax. ONLY contributions to qualified and certified charities are ever deductible. Cars even have special requirements to receive a de…duction that only some qualifed charities are able to comply with.
A private person who buys an article from Goodwill is not eligible for a tax deduction. However, if a private person makes an acceptable donation to Goodwill, she is eligible …for a tax deduction.
Those are amounts taken out of your paycheck that do not reduce the amount of tax you have to pay on your salary.
Yes, if you itemize deductions on Form 1040 Schedule A, but the deduction may be limited to zero if your adjusted gross income (AGI) is high and your deductible expenses are l…ow. For example, if your AGI is $40,000 and your medical and dental expenses are $4,000, your deduction will be limited to $1,000: $40,000 AGI x 7.5% = $3,000 threshold. $4,000 expenses minus $3,000 threshold = $1,000 deduction. See the attached link for a list of expenses that qualify for the medical and dental expense deduction.
You can deduct investment interest up to the amount of net investment income received. You report this on Schedule A using Form 4952 as a back-up computation. Defining net inv…estment income can get a bit tricky. In general, it includes gross income from investment property (such as interest, dividends, short-term capital gains, and elected long-term capital gains), less any investment expenses (which might include expenses for investment publications and similar things).
Deduction is a synonym of subtraction. Something that can be deducted or subtracted.
You do NOT get any deductions on your 1040 income tax return for the payments that you make on your past due federal income taxes, penalties, or interest.
Answer . \nWell, it would be sort of complex, generally part of a Schedule C calulation, but maybe elsewhere if the allied income is coming on a K1 or 1065. You would mos…t likely want to align it to the income it reduces. And it depends if it oil & gas or timber.\n. \n. \nAll exhaustible natural deposits and timber qualify for deduction of a reasonable allowance for depletion based on the taxpayer's cost or other basis of the resourcesâcost depletion. For mines and certain interests in oil or gas wells, the depletion deductions may be computed as a specified percentage of gross income if that is greater than cost depletion. \n. \nA taxpayer can claim percentage depletion on one property and cost depletion on another, or claim, on the same property, cost depletion for one year and percentage for another. \n. \nWhere the property is entitled to either cost or percentage depletion, the allowable deduction is the greater of the two. (Code Sec. 613) Percentage depletion for oil and gas wells (except for gas from certain domestic geothermal deposits or geopressured brine) is limited to âindependent producers and royalty owners,â. The allowable deduction is never less than cost depletion. (Code Sec. 611, Code Sec. 612, Code Sec. 613) There's no official form for computing depletion, but Form T must be attached to the income tax return if a deduction for depletion of timber is taken. \n. \nThe basis of the property must be reduced by the depletion deduction allowed or allowable, whichever is larger. \n. \nA taxpayer may take a depletion deduction only if he owns an âeconomic interestâ in the mineral deposit or the timber. Owners of an economic interest include: (1) owner-operators; (2) lessors and lessees, even where the lessee has an economic interest under a lease terminable without cause on short notice; (3) owner of a royalty interest, or retained net profits interest; and (4) owners of a production payment to the extent it isn't treated as a mortgage loan. (Reg Â§ 1.611-1(b))
It is a term for an amount, whether it be determined by its cost, like a medical expense, or some other method (like a child or dependent person being considered as a specific… amount), that is allowed to offset otherwise taxable income. A Tax Deduction could also be donations: # A church, synagogue, or other religious organization; # A war veterans' organization or its post, auxiliary, trust, or foundation organized in the United States or its possessions; # A nonprofit volunteer fire company; # A civil defense organization created under federal, state, or local law (this includes unreimbursed expenses of civil defense volunteers that are directly connected with and solely attributable to their volunteer services); # A domestic fraternal society , operating under the lodge system, but only if the contribution is to be used exclusively for charitable purposes; # A nonprofit cemetery company if the funds are irrevocably dedicated to the perpetual care of the cemetery as a whole and not a particular lot or mausoleum crypt.
All of it paid in the period, which should check to the 1099-INT the mortgage company sends. (Plus, any amortizable amount from the origination of the mortgage.)
