Calculation:

Taxable income is defined as the income to which tax rates are functional in order to discover the total amount of tax payable for the year. The followings steps are used to calculate

Step 1: The total income is calculated as done below,

Total Income = Adjustments to income + Adjusted Gross Income = $696 +$37,550 =$38,246 Step 2: The standard deductions for married jointly filing will be$12,400 which can be seen from the standard deduction table.

Step 3: None of the conditions are given for high income return so the exemption allowances are calculated as done below,

Exemption Allowances=$3,950×number of exemptions claimed=$3,950×4= $15,800 Step 4: Now, as the deduction to claim,$12,400 is more than the itemized deductions, \$8,400 then the standard deductions are taken into account for the calculation of taxable income
