You can add these in the FEDERAL section under Taxes and Estimates paid, there is an option where you can enter Miscellaneous taxes paid.

Actually, for the state of Hawaii GET tax, that's wrong. the GET tax (General Excise Tax) is imposed on all gross business income. It is not imposed on personal income. Claiming GET on the SCH A will not help you at all if your total SCH A deductions do not exceed your standard deduction.

So for the GET tax the correct place to report it for your rental property, is on line 16 of the SCH E. To do that in Turbotax, work through the rental expenses section and you will enter the GET you paid for each individual property you own, in the "Other Taxes" box. It's directly below the box for "Real Estate Taxes".

Thanks for that tidbit of information. Good to know. I myself left HI 20 years ago next month. A lot has changed on the tax front since then. While I do try to keep up, it's inevitable that some things slip through the cracks.
