Adjusted Gross Income?

Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) is a taxation term used in the United States that calculates a person’s tax liability to the IRS at a given year end. AGI is calculated by taking gross income and subtracting certain deductions.

Definition of Gross Income

Gross income is the addition of employment income, wages, bonuses and the following:

- Interest income from banks/stocks/bonds
- Dividend income from stocks
- Income from retirement accounts
- Capital gains (investment gains)
- Alimonies
- Rental income
- Farm subsidies
- Royalties
- Unemployment income

Total Income is determined on IRS form 1040a http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f1040a.pdf in calculations done from line 7 to line 15. On the other hand, total adjusted gross income is determined from line 16 through to line 21, deriving your total adjusted gross income.
