## AGummiBear55 2 years ago Claire earned a gross income of \$65,745 last year. She made \$1,344.50 in student loan interest deductions and \$2,309.67 in IRA contributions. She also made \$2,170.83 in non-reimbursed medical expenses, donated \$432.16 to her favorite charity, and paid \$861.23 toward her mortgage interest. Claire claims a standard deduction of \$11,400 for herself and her non-working spouse. If their exemption is \$7,300, what is their taxable income?
