Alice: Gross income = \$80,000

Itemized deductions = 0

Brian: Gross income = \$80,000

Deductions for AGI = \$4,000

Itemized deductions = \$4,000

Craig: Gross income = \$80,000

Deductions for AGI = \$0

The most important part is In a paper detail and explain the differences between the standard deduction vs. itemized deduction given the filing status. In addition, compare and contrast deductions for AGI and deductions from AGI (itemized deductions). Thank you
