Don't be too sure. Both of these are new forms this year.

So it seems.

If you don't itemize deductions, or if your itemized deductions are close to the standard deduction,. . . . If you paid real estate taxes

I'll certainly examine things carefully.

I cynically think that in 10 or 15 years, Schedule L will grow into an alternate Schedule A just like AMT is an alternate tax code.

Cynicism has often served me well, or at least been right on target.

I did notice that Schedules A and B are now separate pages, rather than reverse sides of the same page.

Gadzooks, I may finally break down and have to consider using tax software instead of paper, pencil, calculator and scratch paper.

Thanks, Patzer!
