Do you have a TurboTax Online account?

We'll help you get started or pick up where you left off.

Regarding out of state purchases. If a laptop was purchased in Iowa for child to use at college, in Iowa, should this purchase be reported to Illinois for taxation?

My gut said yes, so I have it entered in Turbo Tax but would like to be wrong.

It doesn't matter that you bought it in Iowa; for tax purposes your college-related expenses are reported on your Illinois return, since you are a resident of Illinois.

Thank you, leemarsh.  I pretty much knew the answer.  I was hoping to be told I was wrong.  I guess it fall under "it is better to be honest", especially with taxes.
