Maryland 2013: State Income Tax Subtraction
When itemized deductions on a federal tax return include state income tax, that amount is a subtraction on a Maryland return. If the federal itemized deductions include sales tax instead of state income tax, that amount of sales tax is not a subtraction on the Maryland return.
Certain Maryland customers, who had federal itemized deductions, may have filed an incorrect Maryland tax return.
TurboTax has fixed this issue.
