Questions & Answers

When can I use itemized deductions on my Delaware return?

Delaware allows you to use itemized deductions on your Delaware return even if you used the standard deduction on your federal return. Since the Delaware standard deduction amounts are lower than the federal standard deduction amounts, you may benefit from itemizing on your Delaware return.

Make sure that you entered your eligible deductions on the Menu Path: Deductions/Credits > Itemized Deductions screen.

Based on what you enter, we will use the Delaware deduction type that will give you the greatest benefit.
