TurboTax maximizes your refund by automatically selecting the federal deduction – standard or itemized – that lets you keep more of your hard-earned money.
However, you can manually override this selection if you wish.
To switch deductions, search for itemized deductions, choosing in your TurboTax program. (Be sure to use this exact term, including the comma and space.)
In the search results, click the Jump to itemized deductions, choosing link. This will take you straight to a screen where you can change your deduction.
