Maximizing Below the Line Deductions to Reduce Taxable Income

In this one-minute moment, Dr. Friday explains the importance of below the line deductions in reducing your taxable income. These qualified deductions, such as standard deductions, charitable contributions, medical expenses, and mortgage interest, are subtracted from your adjusted gross income to determine your taxable income. Maximizing these deductions is crucial for saving tax dollars, as most individuals have limited options for reducing their taxes. Dr. Friday encourages listeners to seek help if needed to ensure they are making the most of their available deductions.
