2019 WI Itemized Deduction Credit

Because of an error in a TurboTax calculation, you may have overstated the Itemized Deduction credit on your Wisconsin tax return, leading to a possible underpayment of state income tax.

We fixed the issue in TurboTax and we want to make sure your state tax return is complete and accurate. We recommend that you amend your state tax return to determine whether any additional tax is due. There are no additional fees for checking your TurboTax return or for preparing an amendment. Wisconsin has extended the payment due date for income tax to July 15, 2020. If you have additional tax due, pay the amount by the extended deadline to avoid penalties and interest.

We continuously strive to provide correct and accurate calculations in our TurboTax products. Sometimes that effort results in our finding errors after returns have been filed. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you. If you need additional help, we’ve provided contact info below.

To amend your return in TurboTax, follow these step-by-step instructions:

  1. Write down the original refund or balance due amount for your Wisconsin state income taxes. We recommend you check the paper/PDF copy of your return(s), or your banking records to verify the correct amount.
  2. Launch TurboTax and open your 2019 return.
  3. Before you make any changes, select File, and Save As. Then add Amended 2019 return to the file name to preserve your original return.
