Can I still itemize my deductions?

SOLVEDby TurboTax3169Updated 2 weeks ago

When you finish going through the Deductions & Credits section, we'll automatically give you the deduction, Standard or itemized, that gives you the best outcome on your federal taxes. We estimate that nearly 90% of federal tax filers will be better off taking the higher Standard Deduction.

If you still want to switch to the itemized deduction, you can do that. Follow these instructions.

With state returns, things are a little different. Some states don't have itemized deductions, while others may 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.
