Why doesn't Schedule A appear or print out in my Federal taxes.

 If it's giving you the Standard Deduction and  not showing you Schedule A you can check the actual amount of itemized deductions by using by going to
Tax Tools on left
Tools - Topic Search (top left box)
Type in  itemized deductions, choosing.  It should highlight that in the list, click on GO

Then Click on "Change my deduction". That will display the actual amount of itemized deductions vs. the standard deduction.    (Be sure to uncheck "Change my deduction" after checking it so you do not lock in the wrong deduction.

This year deductions are changing and several will be limited.  There is a max 10,000 limit of State, local, property, and sales tax (SALT) deduction.  And employee job expenses have been suspended.  You can only deduct Medical/Dental that's over 7.5% of your AGI.

If your Schedule A didn't print out, it is most likely because TurboTax has done the calculations and determined that the Standard Deduction brings you the most tax benefit. 

Your total Itemized Deductions on Schedule A must exceed the Standard Deduction amount in order for it to be used instead. 

You can see the amount of your deduction on Line 8 of your Form 1040.
