What is Schedule A?

The IRS lets you take either the Standard Deduction or the itemized deduction. If you itemize, we'll automatically fill out Schedule A, Itemized Deductions.

Schedule A lets you report certain deductible expenses like:

  • Medical and dental costs above and beyond 7.5% of your AGI
  • State, local, real estate, and personal property taxes
  • Home mortgage interest
  • Charitable donations and gifts

Casualty losses (losses caused by a sudden, unexpected, or unusual event) to personal property are only deductible if covered by specific federal disaster declarations.

After you finish going through the Deductions & Credits section, we'll recommend whichever deduction – standard or itemized – gives you the biggest tax break. But you can always override our recommendation if you wish.

Schedule A is supported in the paid versions of TurboTax.
