“Is it more effective to itemize or accept the standard deductions? The answer to that depends. It helps to start by seeing what the standard deductions will be. If you have a lot of mortgage interest, make significant charitable contributions, have significant out of pocket medical expenses, have qualified job expenses that weren’t reimbursed to you, or have significant state & local income or sales tax you may want to consider itemized deductions.”
