Bill T Peabody writes:

doubling the standard deduction brings the amount back to par after adjusting for inflation. It's been over 20 years folks!

Lou Di Leonardo writes:

Itemization usually results in LOWER tax bills. If the State of Virginia allows itemization to account for high local real estate taxes, it is the State that will lose money needed to pay for the foolish expansion of Medicaid into the middle class. State authorities won't allow it for that reason alone.
