Winter Regional Travel

Posted by Molly Kavanaugh on Jan 22, 2019 10:19:48 AM

One of the many perks I’m looking forward to when my husband and I retire is traveling when we want, not at the whim of workplace calendars. Years ago, my husband was a photographer for a TV station and could not get time off during the rating “sweeps” periods. (OK, they did make an exception for the birth of our May baby.)

The new tax law almost doubles the previous standard deduction amount to $24,000 for married filing jointly, $12,000 for single filers, and $18,000 for heads of households. This increase means that while in past years you might have itemized, this year you might be better off taking the standard deduction.
