Medical deductions: You can deduct qualified medical and dental expenses that exceed 10 percent of your adjusted gross income for the year. "So you don't have to worry about it". Your tax pro is swamped right now and will surely appreciate having more time to finish and review your return when things are less hectic and stressful.

"Frankly, I am not aware of any pending case against Mr. Lucio Tan". A late payment penalty is 0.5% of the additional tax owed for every month, also up to a maximum of 25%. "I'm a sort of full-time member of the tax policy community, and I still find it hard and unpleasant".
