One of the questions was how much rent did I pay my landlord in 2019. Does that mean as a renter of an apartment

Rent to landlord deductions

Is this on a state return?  Would it not make sense to ask about rent in an apartment if the state return is asking about rent?  There are some states in which you can get a credit for rent paid.



There is not a rent deduction or credit on your Federal return.  If your state has anything for renters you will be prompted to enter your rent info when you complete your state return.  As far as I know, the states that have anything for rent are Arizona, California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Wisconsin.
