What is adjusted gross income?

The AGI calculation is relatively straightforward.

  • It is equal to the total income you report that’s subject to income tax—such as earnings from your job, self-employment, dividends and interest from a bank account—minus specific deductions, or “adjustments” that you’re eligible to take (e.g., student loan interest, Alimony paid, IRA deduction, etc.)
  • Your AGI is calculated before you take the standard or itemized deductions —which you report in later sections of the return.
