Taxes may not be the most fun part of life, but they are a reality many of us can’t escape. Taxes affect our retirement planning, how costly it is to own a home and how much take-home pay we receive on our income.

The rules around paying taxes are ever-changing, too. The IRS adjusted more than 60 tax provisions due to high inflation for the 2022 tax year. Perhaps the most notable change was the increase in the standard deduction. The standard deduction for married couples filing jointly for tax year 2022 rose to $25,900, up $800 from the prior year. For single taxpayers and married individuals filing separately, the standard deduction rose to $12,950 for 2022, up $400, and for heads of households the standard deduction was $19,400, up $600.

Because taxes affect so many aspects of our finances, the tax topics that were most popular this year ran the gamut from the types of retirement income that aren’t taxable to which states have the highest property taxes.
