MO Health Insurance Deduction

I have entered information from my 1095-A and am taking the health insurance premiums that I am paying as a self employed health insurance deduction on the federal return.  I shouldn't also be allowed to take that deduction AGAIN on the Missouri return, however that is how the software is currently working.  Is there a way to get rid of that subtraction on Missouri?  Thanks!

MO Health Insurance Deduction

Have you already gone completely through both the Missouri and US Returns? 

 

TurboTax will automatically take any portion of the health insurance deduction that doesn't end up as deductible on your Federal return (because of income, or other limitations) and they will automatically be transferred to the Missouri return.  

 

So you will be deducting the same Premiums, but only the portion on the Missouri return for which you did not receive any benefit.

MO Health Insurance Deduction

I agree with Relsberry, and have the same situation.  TT automatically included the 1095-A health insurance premium as a qualified health insurance premium deduction.  This premium has already been deducted in the Federal adjusted gross that is entered on MO-1040 line 1Y -- then it is included again in the Total subtractions on line MO-1040 line 4Y.  Is this correct?  Why does Turbo automatically make the entry on Form 5695 Line 6Y? The deduction is not limited for me.
