Deductions from Gross Income

Certain deductions from gross income have been extended only through the end of the year, so it may be prudent to begin identifying opportunities to take advantage of those tax breaks.

Among the provisions are:

  • The deduction of up to $250 for K-12 teachers’ expenses
  • The deduction of up to $4,000 of tuition and related expenses (limited at higher income levels)
