Filers who earn taxable income of less than the standard deduction don't typically need to file a federal tax return. But if they earned income during the tax year and had taxes withheld from their paychecks, it's likely a good idea to run their information through a tax software program and see if they're due a refund.
There are two ways you can take deductions on your federal income tax return: you can itemize deductions or use the standard deduction. Deductions reduce the amount of your taxable income.
Every taxpayer is entitled to it, no questions asked. This can make a big difference regarding the amount of tax you pay. But you have a choice to make. You can either take the standard deduction or itemize your tax return to get a bigger deduction.
The amount of your standard deduction depends on the filing status you qualify for. In 2019 for example, single taxpayers and married taxpayers who file separate returns can claim a $12,200 standard deduction.
