Why can't I enter my medical and dental expenses on the State portion of my tax forms
The amounts for itemized deductions such as medical and dental
expenses are entered in the federal portion of the interview under
Deductions and Credits.
In order to have Alabama itemized
deductions, enter all your itemized deductions like charity, medical,
work expenses, and property taxes in the federal itemized deductions
area. You may not qualify for the federal itemized deductions but the
itemized amounts will carry over to the Alabama return and Turbo Tax
will check to see if you qualify for Alabama itemized deductions.
