Here are some questions:

1) What is the typical amount of total itemized deductions if AGI is $100,000?
2) What is the typical amount of Charitable Deductions as a % of total itemized deductions?
3) What is the typical amount of Employee Business Expenses as a % of total itemized deductions?

There are answers here that fall into an acceptable range for the IRS. If you file and your return shows figures out of the acceptable range, such as total itemized deductions at 80% of AGI, your return can get flagged and scrutinized more closely with a risk of audit. The IRS has acceptable ranges for these questions, but keeps it unpublished.

Where can I find info on this?
