What is adjusted gross income and what is taxable income — What's the difference between the two?
Regarding your question, what is adjusted gross income and what is taxable income, W-2 gross income includes amounts from your W-2 that you must report on your return, while your taxable income is your adjusted gross income (AGI) minus your deductions. AGI includes W-2 gross income and income from other sources.
So, if you only earn W-2 wages, your W-2 income is probably larger than your total taxable income.
