District of Columbia 2011: Itemized Deductions Adjustment
District of Columbia taxpayers with a DC AGI higher than $200,000 ($100,000 married filing separately) who also filed a Schedule A (Itemized Deduction) with their federal return, are required to adjust the amount of deductions taken on their federal return in order to calculate their DC itemized deductions.
Certain customers, who itemized deductions on their federal return, may have filed an incorrect District of Columbia tax return.
TurboTax has fixed this issue.
