Vermont 2010: Alimony Paid
Vermont taxpayers may claim a Renter’s Rebate credit on their state tax return and/or file a Property Tax Adjustment claim. Both the credit and the adjustment claimed are based on household income.
Certain customers, who paid alimony, might have filed an incorrect state tax return or an incorrect property tax adjustment form.
TurboTax has fixed this issue.
How to tell if you are impacted:
You may be affected if ALL of the following are true:
- You filed a 2010 Vermont return prior to September 21, 2011 AND
- You were a resident of Vermont in 2010 AND
- You have an amount on your Federal Form 1040, Line 31a (Alimony Paid) AND
- There is not an amount on your Vermont Form HI-144, Line q2 (Alimony Paid) AND
- If you rented for the entire year and the amount on Form HI-144, line y (Household Income) is less than $47,000 after deducting alimony paid AND/OR
- If you paid property taxes and the amount on Form HI-144, line y (Household Income) is no more than $97,000 after deducting alimony paid.
If none of these apply to you, you may disregard this email. However, if you rent and these conditions apply to you, then you may have overpaid your taxes, and you’ll need to amend your tax return.
If you paid property taxes and these conditions apply to you, you may have filed an incorrect property claim adjustment and you’ll need to amend Form HS-145, Property Tax Adjustment claim.
