Itemized deductions allow you to deduct your expenses such as mortgage, interest, donations, medical expenses, and so forth. When the summation of your itemized deduction exceeds the value of your standard deduction, your total deduction amount begins to increase. Additional deductions can reduce the amount of income being taxed and increase your tax refund or diminish any tax liability.
