I'm not saying take away tax benefits to married ppl, but I am saying give single ppl those same tax write offs
Can you provide an example of a specific tax break that a married couple (the married couple being two people of course) gets that is not available to a single person?
For example the deduction per person for the 2015 taxable year was $6,300, for married filing jointly it's $12,600 (x2 for two people).
Deductions for dependent children of course don't matter because the same deduction is available whether you are single or married.
