How is the state and local income taxes greater than $10,000 calculated?

I paid $17,201 in state and local taxes, I know there is a $10,000 cap, but the state and local taxes greater than $10,000 is showing a negative $12,872 on my return.

No need to respond to my last question I have researched the issue and have the answer. It is combining State and Local income taxes paid, Real Estate taxes paid and Personal taxes paid and deducting the $10,000 maximum deduction from that total resulting in the difference reducing my overall deductions.

Yes, you are correct.  Beginning on your 2018 Tax Return, you can only deduct a maximum of $10,000 for the combination of State, Local, Property, and Sales Tax deduction.

For more information on this new limitation and all the other recent tax changes, you can check out this TurboTax FAQ: How Will New Tax Legislation Affect My 2018 Tax Return?
