Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Thanks for you answer, Not sure if age is a factor but I am 73, wife 70, I was looking for a ball park answer as we will probably have a CPA do our taxes
this time and see if it is worth while to claim contributions to Charity, medical and other expenses to reduce our tax.
Thanks for your help
Age makes a little difference. Being over 65 gives you an additional standard deduction. I missed it in my first answer, it will drop the tax by an additional 500 dollars to near 20,500.
Charitable deductions would definitely be helpful. The medical deductions would likely fall below to the 7.5% gross income limit (if you medical expenses are not more than 10k,are not deducted) and would not be deductible.
Let me know if there is anything else I can help you with.
