I selected itemize deductions. Now I want to go back and select standard deductions. Can't do it.

I selected itemized deductions because I wanted to see if I would get any benefit from my daughter's college tuition. Turned out not to be the case. Now I want to go back to the screens where I  have the option to select standard deduction without going through all the itemized deductions. I cannot get back to it. If I start the deductions & credits section over again, it takes me right into itemizing.

I selected itemize deductions. Now I want to go back and select standard deductions. Can't do it.

Try this:

  • Federal
  • Deductions & Credits
  • At the bottom...wrap up tax breaks...or view list, then wrap up tax breaks
  • You will eventually get to a page "We've Chosen Itemized Deductions for You" (see screenshot)
  • This is where you can change it. You may have to click in two spots...change my deduction and standard deduction

If you have other questions about this, ask in the comment section below.
