2016 Alabama Educator Expenses Amend Instructions

Certain taxpayers who filed Alabama Schedule A may need to amend their state tax return.   Although we fixed the issue in TurboTax, we want to make sure your return is complete and accurate.

You may be affected if all of the following apply to you:

  • You filed your Alabama state tax return prior to July 27, 2017 AND
  • You had educator expenses on the federal return AND
  • You itemized deductions on your Alabama return AND
  • Your miscellaneous deductions exceeded 2% of Alabama Adjusted Gross Income
If you are affected, you may have overpaid your state tax. You may need to amend your state tax return. 

What you need to do:

Remember to keep a copy of your amended return in your tax files.

Filing an amended return is free.  If for any reason you are not satisfied with TurboTax as a result of this issue, we will refund your purchase price.
