My state return is not deducting the state taxes I paid even though the amount is listed on my federal return and on the first sheet of my state return. Help!
Yes, if you have any entries in boxes 15-17 then all fields must be entered. Glad to hear it worked out.
The state taxes that you paid would not be deductible on your state tax return. If you itemized your federal deductions, then they are added back on your state return.
I figured it out. Line16 on my W-2 didn't have any taxable wages listed. A payroll error that greatly affects my state tax refund.
