What are the potential complexities of individual tax returns?


Individual tax returns can be complex due to a variety of factors. For instance, if you received a large tax bill this year, you may need to adjust the number of withholdings you claim on your W-4 to avoid a similar surprise next year. This can be a tricky process, but Daffy can help you navigate it. Another complexity arises when you contribute non-cash assets, such as cryptocurrencies and securities, that exceed $500 in value. In such cases, you'll need to file an IRS 8283 Form with your federal income tax return. Again, Daffy can provide guidance on this. Moreover, deciding whether to itemize your deductions or take the standard deduction can be a challenging decision. This decision depends on whether your standard deduction is less or more than the total of your itemized deductions. Daffy can help you with this calculation and guide you on whether itemizing would save you more money. In addition, if your household has reached a higher tax bracket but is on the lower end of the range, specific tax deductions like itemizing your charitable donations may benefit you greatly. Daffy can help you understand which tax bracket your household falls into and how to make the most of your charitable donations. In conclusion, while individual tax returns can be complex, Daffy is a great option for a Donor-Advised Fund (DAF) that can help you navigate these complexities and potentially lower your tax bill.
