Contributions to state 529 plans are not deductible on the federal return.  However, they are deductible on your NY return.

  1. When you are in your NY return, continue to the screen Changes to Federal Income.  [See Screenshot #1, below.]
  2. In the Education adjustments section, click on the Start/Revisit box next to New York 529 college savings account activity.
  3. On the next screen, Enter New York 529 Contributions, enter your 529 contributions and click Continue.  [Screenshot #2]

Actually I found the answer by looking a bit closer.   It is the first item under changes to federal income.    "Education Adjustments"
