Frequently Asked Questions

What special deductions can I get if I'm self-employed?

You may be able to take an immediate expense deduction of up to $500,000 for 2016 (same as 2015), for equipment purchased for use in your business, instead of writing it off over many years. Additionally, self-employed individuals can deduct 100 percent of their health insurance premiums. You may also be able to establish a Keogh, SEP or SIMPLE IRA plan and deduct your contributions (investments).

Can I ever save tax by filing a separate return instead of jointy with my spouse?

You sometimes may benefit from filing separately instead of jointly. Consider filing separately if you meet the following criteria:
• One spouse has large medical expenses, miscellaneous itemized deductions, or casualty losses.
• The spouses' incomes are about equal.
Separate filing may benefit such couples because the adjusted gross income "floors" for taking the listed deductions will be computed separately.

What's the best way to give to charity?

If you're planning to make a charitable gift, it generally makes more sense to give appreciated long-term capital assets to the charity, instead of selling the assets and giving the charity the after-tax proceeds. Donating the assets instead of the cash avoids capital gains tax on the sale, and you can obtain a tax deduction for the full fair-market value of the property.
