                        2007 Personal Exemptions

          Higher personal exemptions for all taxpayers



                 In 2007 the personal exemption thresholds increased adjusted for inflation.  The personal exemption threshold for each filing status, such as single, married, married filing separately, and head of household, have been increased.

                  By raising the personal exemption limits, your effective tax tax bracket may be lowered since this exemption lowers your taxable income. Everyone that files an individual tax return receives a personal exemption for himself and each of his dependents. If your filing status changes during the tax year, then you still are entitled to the full personal exemption relating to your filing status as of the last day of the year. Take your adjusted gross income less your standard deduction, less your personal exemptions, to arrive at your taxable income.
