Questions & Answers

What can I include in my California itemized deductions?

California generally doesn't conform to the changes from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, including the changes to what's allowed as an itemized deduction. This means you can include some things as itemized deductions for California that you're not able to include in your federal itemized deductions.

Some examples include:

  • unreimbursed employee expenses
  • personal casualty or theft losses
  • tax preparation fees
  • certain mortgage interest, points, or insurance above the limits on a federal return.
