You do get an extra $1,300 standard deduction amount for being over 65.

Or do you mean this?  Very few people qualify for this.

The 'over 65' additional deduction is automatically included; TTax calculates your age based on the current date and the birth date you entered in the 'Personal Information' section.

There may also be some state tax credit.
