Customer Question

Barbara,Thank you so much. I have one more question about the AGI. I have a new job and this year my salary is going to be right around $80,000. If it is more than $80,000 then I won't be able to deduct my student loan interest that I've paid. When calculating my AGI should I exclude any of the following when calculating my AGI:
1. Student Loan Interest
2. Health/Dental Insurance premiums
3. Retirement FundsI just want to make sure I can deduct my student loan interest so if I need to deduct more for retirement the rest of the year then I'll do that to be able to deduct my student loan interest.
