Don't know what an adjusted gross income (AGI) is? This is the wikipedia definition
"Adjusted gross income (AGI) is a United States tax term for an amount used in the calculation of an individual's income tax liability. AGI is calculated by taking an individual's gross income and subtracting the income tax code's enumerated deductions, and is an important benchmark determining certain other allowed benefits.To recap, your adjusted gross income is NOT how much you made this year. It is how much you made after "above-the-line" deductions like student loan interest, contributions to IRA's and Health Savings Accounts, 1/2 of self-employment taxes and more.
Gross income includes wages, interest income, dividend income, income from certain retirement accounts, capital gains, alimony received, rental income, royalty income, farm income, unemployment compensation, and certain other kinds of income. AGI is the last number on the first page of the Form 1040, the standard U.S. income tax return form for individuals."
