Is the maximum deduction $600 on a joint return?
$300 is the max.
No, $300 for MFJ, supposed to change in 2021 to $300 per taxpayer, I think, maybe.
Sorry @IRonMaN did not see your reply.
No problem - I tend to blend in with the paneling 😁
Yep, the $600 for MFJ starts with the 2021 tax year.
But the deduction starting in 2021 is a BELOW the line deduction.
Should benefit most, if allowed in addition to standard deduction. I have not read the particulars of the 2021 deduction.
