Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
There are several big changes but probably what you are referring to is doubled standard deduction. It allows you to deduct larger amount without having to itemize your deduction and provide receipts for your taxes, mortgage interest, medical, charitable and such. Standard deduction for single increases to 12K, for couple to 24K and head of household to 18K.
However, you will not be able to deduct 4K for you, your spouse and your dependents, known as exemptions.
