Can I still itemize my deductions?


For tax year 2018 (the taxes you’ll be filing in 2019), the standard deduction will rise and many individual deductions are being suspended or changed. Search TurboTax for the individual deductions you’re interested in for details, or have a look here.

We’ll automatically figure out which deduction works best in your favor, but you can switch to the other one, if you prefer.

With state returns, things are a little different: Some states, like Illinois and Massachusetts, only offer the standard deduction; others, like New York, require that you choose the same deduction you took on your federal return. When you get to your state return, we'll let you know what’s available according to your state's tax laws.
