Usually, you will need to pay less federal income taxes if you take your standard deductions or the larger of the itemized deductions. This form allows you to deduct some medical and dental expenses. You can also use it to deduct certain contributions, taxes, interest, casualty and theft losses, and others. If you and your spouse own property jointly and jointly paid certain expenses (e.g., home mortgage or investment interests) but are filing separate returns, look through the IRS Publication 504 to determine what joint expenses you can claim on this form. Find additional detailed information about the calculation of the itemized deductions in the official IRS-issued Instructions for Schedule A (Form 1040).
