I am a lecturer with salary 15K per year. Does it make sense to seek deductions in my current situation?


In 2018, the federal standard deduction for single filers is $12,000. It seems likely that your itemized deductions would not exceed this and so you do not need to be concerned with itemizing.

However, you may be eligible for above-the-line deductions such as student loan interest.
