Itemized deductions not supported by Federal Schedule A

Apologies for the vague post. Let me clarify. I filed Delaware State returns and Itemized deductions. I received a mail in the post today from the State of Delaware saying that they were "Missing Federal Schedule A - The amount of $XXX for Itemized deductions is not supported by a copy of your Federal Schedule A". I e-filed and so assumed the Federal Schedule A would be sent as well. I have been given 20 days to respond. I believe the correct thing to do is to send them my copy of Federal Schedule A.


Any advice?

Itemized deductions not supported by Federal Schedule A

If your total itemized deductions on the federal return were not greater than the standard deduction for your filing status then the standard deduction would have been used on the federal return.


Not familiar with the DE state return, but if you did enter itemized deductions even though they were less than your standard deduction on the federal return, I would assume that the TurboTax program would have included the IRS Schedule A with the state return if you entered itemized deductions on the state return instead of using the standard deduction on the state return.


Look to see if the Schedule A is included as part of your federal tax return when you access your returns through Print Center and request all forms and worksheets.  The PDF download from the Tax Home web page only includes those forms required to file a Federal and State tax return.


When you sign onto your online account and land on the Tax Home web page, scroll down and click on Add a state.  Add a State 2018.JPG



This will take you back to the 2018 online tax return.


Click on Tax Tools on the left side of the online program screen.  Then click on Print Center.  Then click on Print, save or preview this year's return.  Choose the option Include government and TurboTax worksheets


If not included in the file from Print Center, then you will need to contact TurboTax support on Monday for assistance.

Support is open from 5am to 5pm Pacific time, Monday thru Friday
