It is in your best interest to itemize your federal tax deductions and state tax deductions (if any) to net the largest tax cut you can. The IRS has a handful of publications that identify deductible items, including among others Publication 529, Miscellaneous Deductions; Publication 936, Home Mortgage Interest Deductions; Publication 502, Medical and Dental Expenses; and Publication 503, Child and Dependent Care Expenses. There are also publications devoted specifically to business tax deductions, including Publication 535, Business Expenses.
