Thought I'd try to estimate my 2020 federal taxes. I'm using the tax computation worksheet and find that if I take all of my deductions, I fall just below the cutoff that separates two income ranges. If I don't take one of my deductions, I fall just above the cutoff (i.e., in the higher income range) and end up owing less tax.
So, my question is: Am I required to take deductions on my federal tax return? I might want to eliminate one.
Tried Google to no avail.
