Deductions
Most taxpayers have a choice of taking either a standard deduction or itemizing their deductions. If you have a substantial amount of deductions, you may want to itemize. You will need to bring the following information:
● 1098 Form showing any home mortgage interest

● Summary of contributions to charity
● Receipts or canceled checks for all quarterly or other paid tax
● Property Tax bills and proof of payment
● Please note: If you itemized last year, bring all the information on the deductions listed above this year. Although the standard deduction has increased under the new tax law, it may be advantageous to itemize to minimize both federal
and Maryland taxes.

Health Insurance
● 1095A Forms if you purchased insurance through the Marketplace (Exchange) Credits
● Dependent care provider information (name, employer ID, or Social Security number)
● 1098-T and 1098-E Forms (Tuition and Student Loan Interest)
