Is it good to itemise deductions on tax returns and when can an individual itemise the deductions?
ON a federal return the standard deduction for 2005 is $ 5,000.00 and single, $10,000 married filing joint and $7,300.00 for head of household. You would have to have more this for it to help. State vary by states. So, if your intemized deductions are more than the base amount for the year given to anyone, it is better to do so.

Sales tax is deductible as an itemized deduction (Schedule A), however you can deduct EITHER: -Sales Tax Paid -State income taxes paid Obviously you would want …to deduct whichever is higher. This deduction can be very beneficial to people living in states that do not have an income tax, such as Florida.
If as part of an endeavor to make income, yes, like any other business expense. If for criminal, divorce, family, etc. needs, No.

Maximizing deductions is a way to get a large refund but can also raise red flags with the IRS, if the deductions dont make sense for the filer. Careful documentation is also …needed. nas The previous answer is NOT up to the normal sytandards of the submitter! In US income tax, there is no such thing as "maximum" deductions. in fact there ia one base amount - frequently called trhe minimum deduction - allowed everyone, regardless of their income or position otherwise. If your certified and supported tax deductible expenses add up to be GREATER than that (no maximum), then those may be used instead of the base amount. THIS IS CALLED "ITEMIZING DEDUCTIONS". Note, some deductions/expenses are different than others - and may only be allowed to offset that same or similar type of income.
