Its just a deduction on the interest. you should get a statement from your mortgage company and your tax guy/program will cover that.

No, only if you are self employed. If they did I would make a killing on that. Not many deductions for the working middle class single person. Thats why the middle class pays the most.

No, but if you dont own a house or your own business than you wouldnt itemize, which you whould have to do to get certain deductions. When you Itemize you loose the 5450 personal deduction, so if your deductions dont exceed that than you wouldnt Itemize.

Single suppose to have its benifits, but paying tax on single and 0 is BS.

Other mother ****ers that are a drain on society dont pay .

I have no expenses, just me and my cages and bikes. I guess I could claim the water I used to flush a dead fish as my only tax deduction, that is kind of like a vet bill, right?

I didn't work at all last year, full time student. However, I did pay highest % taxes possible on cashing in my 401k, and selling stock, so I will get all that tax money back. Usually I made too much for a huge return... never really understood how to get those. :/:

Turbotax FTW

Flat Tax FTMFW!
