What is the difference between gross income and taxable income?
58% of people found this answer helpful

Gross income is a combination of your income sources from salary, pensions, Social Security, interest, dividends, capital gains and alike. You can find your gross income on tax form 1040 on line 37. Adjustments to gross income are on the bottom of page 1 of this form. You can deduct health insurance if you’re self-employed and deduct pension payments. You deduct those from your gross income to get adjusted gross income. Page 2 has itemized deductions. Gross income minus adjustments, minus itemized deductions, minus exemptions is your taxable income which can be found on line 43. That shows you the amount that you will be taxed on.
