Delaware 2013: Itemized Deductions
In 2013, Delaware conformed to the federal tax return limitation on itemized deductions for high income taxpayers.
Certain Delaware customers, whose itemized deductions were limited for federal tax purposes, may have filed an incorrect Delaware tax return.
TurboTax has fixed this issue.
