IRS Allowed Expenses for Food, Clothing
and Other Items
(Monthly National Standard Expenses)
of March 1, 2009***
Food, housekeeping supplies,
apparel and services, personal care products and services, and miscellaneous
|Apparel & Services
Products & Svcs.
National Standards have been established for five necessary expenses: food,
housekeeping supplies, apparel and services, personal care products and
services, and miscellaneous.
The standards are derived from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) Consumer
Expenditure Survey (CES).
Taxpayers are allowed the total National Standards amount monthly for their
family size, without questioning the amounts they actually spend. If the amount
claimed is more than the total allowed by the National Standards, the taxpayer
must provide documentation to substantiate those expenses are necessary living
expenses. Generally, the total number of persons allowed for National Standards
should be the same as those allowed as exemptions on the taxpayer’s most recent
year income tax return.
