This is very broad brush, making the assumption that you're filing as single, have no dependents and are having nothing withheld

Hi Mary Beth,

I do have state and federal taken out of my retail income. I have no dependents. I live with my step mom after filing for divorce and trying to recover from that. I do provide deductions, office expenses, licensing fees and operational expenses will be about 7300. I do a detail breakdown for my account. But those are the main numbers unless you need something else. Do these number help or change anything?

Yes, I used 6500 for the deductions...I'll use the 7300.

That will help.

Be right back with that

And be sure to subtract any withholding to get to amount owed (or refund)
