Regular Deductions

These deductions are not related to an artistic profession and can be taken regardless of your profession. Please be aware that most of the deductions listed below either have income limitations or can only be taken if you choose to itemize. While this list does cover all the common deductions, it does not cover every potential deduction, nor does it cover tax credits. For more details, feel free to contact me to set up an appointment.

NOTE: THIS PAGE ONLY ADDRESSES DEDUCTIONS FOR FEDERAL TAX RETURNS AND NOT STATE TAX RETURNS. BECAUSE STATE TAX RETURNS VARY SIGNIFICANTLY FROM STATE TO STATE, BE SURE TO CHECK WITH YOUR LOCAL DEPARTMENT OF REVENUE.
