I used itemized deductions in 2019. The amount allowed for NY is about 6, 000 dollars less than the amount the Feds allowed. Why?
Thank you for your quick reply. I live in Florida which is a no-income tax state. I do pay property taxes in other states besides Florida...NC and MA, but I believe I don't hit the SALT limit. The Federal return allowed me a deduction of 27800ish...and NY only gave me 21600ish. What if I had taken the standard deduction? Based on your answer, I'm thinking that it would be a better blanket, covering everything. This year's deductions will be under the standard so it will be a moot point for 2020.
