What deductions can I itemize for North Carolina?
North Carolina doesn't allow all of the federal itemized deductions, but you are allowed to itemize the following:
- Qualifying home mortgage interest
- Real estate property taxes
- Charitable contributions
- Medical and dental expenses
- Repayment of claim of right income
Beginning in 2018, North Carolina filers can now itemize on their North Carolina return even if they did not itemize on their federal return.
