I have a question about claiming deductions from a prior year. Last year, I was married for the first time in September. My wife received a divorce from her prior husband in August. I had a lot of expenses that I could have itemized, but we filed as married filing separate, and she claimed the standard exemption not itemizing, so I had to do the same, which cost me a lot. I had sold some stock I owned to finance the wedding and related expenses, which boosted me from the lowest tax bracket into the next bracket with an AGI of about $28,000 last year. I am now divorced from my wife, as of the 13th of this month. My question, can I itemize this expenses from last year on this years return filing single?Jackson AndersenProvo, Utah
