New Mexico 2011: Filers Age 65 and Older or Blind
If New Mexico taxpayers itemize deductions (Schedule A) on their federal return, the state/local income tax or general sales tax deductions claimed on that Schedule A are added back as income on their New Mexico tax return.
Certain customers, who were born before January 2, 1947 or are blind AND itemized deductions on their federal tax return, may have filed an incorrect New Mexico tax return.
TurboTax has fixed this issue.
