Why $6400 for 2 personal exemptions in 2005 when 1 of them was 65+, and AGI under the phaseout amount?Because age doesn't affect personal exemptions. It affects the standard deduction.I'm afraid we're dating ourselves. (In my case, no one else will.) Back when the earth was cooling over 65 meant an additional personal exemption, and Congress hadn't invented phaseouts. I don't remember exactly when they shifted it to the current system of an "enhanced" standard deduction for age and blindness, but it's been a while.Phil
