How can I tell which deduction (standard or itemized) I'm using?

TurboTax automatically selects the federal deduction – standard or itemized – that works best in your favor.

You can see which deduction we've chosen by following the instructions below.


Simply search for itemized deductions, choosing in your TurboTax program. Be sure to use this exact term, including the comma and space.

Then, in the search results, click the "Jump to" link. This will take you straight to a screen where you can see your deduction.

You can select Change my deduction if you want to switch to the other one. Please note that switching to itemized in Free Edition will require an upgrade to Deluxe, as Free Edition doesn't support Schedule A.
