CHECK MY WORK? :)
(Q) Jeffrey earned a gross income of $78,350 last year. He made $2,489.78 in student loan interest deductions, donated $4,294 to his favorite charities and paid $3,571.32 in home mortgage interest. Jeffrey claims a standard deduction of $11,400 for himself and his nonworking spouse. If their exemption is $7,300, what is their taxable income?
A. $49,294.40
B. $53,588.90
C. $57,160.22
D. $60,694.90
This is my work:
78350  2489.78 = 75,860.22  11400  7300 = 60,160.22.
I don't know what I'm doing wrong, my answer doesn't match the multiple choice answers!
