A tax deduction is an expense that can be subtracted from your taxable income, which effectively reduces the amount of tax you owe to the government. This means that if you have qualifying expenses, you can lower the amount of income tax you are required to pay. Some common examples of tax deductions include charitable donations, home mortgage interest, and medical expenses. To claim a deduction, you must itemize your deductions on your tax return rather than taking the standard deduction. This can be a useful way to reduce your tax liability and keep more of your hard-earned money.
