Hello!

My name is***** will assist you today.

Please give me one moment while I review your question and type my initial response

Ask Your Own Tax Question

You should itemize due to your medical bill expense.

Does your gross income include the TSP withdraw?

No, it was a 40000 withdrawal with 10% taken out automatically

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Gross income 107000 plus 40000 tsp minus 4000 plus 45000 medical bills

If your gross income is $107,000 (which includes the $36,000 TSP) and you have not paid any tax through withholding and are married filing jointly with $45,000 of medical bills, your approximate tax liability would be.

$107,000 - $34,300 medical bill itemized deductions = taxable income of $72,700 with a tax liability of $10,070

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Which means we would owe 10,070?

Your total earned income is 147,000.

Your medical deduction will also change. ..... to $30,300

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Total we owe to Uncle Sam ?

This will bring the amount you owe up to $13,289

Ask Your Own Tax Question

This does not include any other deductions or any amount withheld from W2 income.

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Ok, anyway to reduce it?
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
File separate or married make a difference

Married filing separately generally is never the best option.

You most likely have paid a good amount in through W2 withholding's. Also, you may have had some taxes withheld when you withdrew money from the TSP.

Ask Your Own Tax Question

You also will have other deductions since you itemized such as real estate tax or mortgage interest for example.

Ask Your Own Tax Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
we paid 4000 right off the bat

The amount, I gave you is the top end and if you have no other payments into tax.

You can subtract the $13,289 - $4,000 you paid in =$9289
