My wife and I are retired and we're both over 65.In figuring out our standard deduction, the 1040 instructions lead me to a worksheet on page 36.Line 1 is filing status; married filing jointly; I enter $11,400Line 2: we can't be claimed as dependents on someone else's return so I go to line 3.Bzzzz! Let's all look together at line 2. The worksheet says:"No. Enter the amount from line 1 on line 4, skip line 3,and go to line 5."Go back and do it right and you'll get the right answer.PhilRule Your Retirement Home Fool
