District of Columbia: Itemized Deductions

For 2013, on the federal 1040 tax return, the itemized deductions may be limited for taxpayers with adjusted gross income over $250,000 ($300,000 if filing jointly.)

Certain District of Columbia customers, who had limited itemized deductions on their federal tax return, may have filed an incorrect District of Columbia tax return.
