Tax law changes could affect your 2018 tax return

    The year of offsetting changes. That is how Andrew Zumwalt describes tax year 2018.    
    “Tax law changes removed exemptions—the deduction from income for claiming people on a tax return—but the law also almost doubled the standard deduction,” he says. For example, a single person had a 2017 standard deduction of $6,350. For 2018, the standard deduction is $12,000.
