Indiana Add Back of the Tuition and Fee Deduction

Highlighted
Level 1

I had a client call me because he received a notice from Indiana that said they were going to increase his refund by eliminating the add back for the tuition and fee deduction forced on his Indiana return. I now have another client that Lacerte is forcing a tutition and fees federal deduction as an Indiana add back. So who is right the State of Indiana or Lacerte.

Have you looked at the IN forms instructions and IN law?

It's too bad the squirrel is no longer with us.  This sounds like it could have been a nine post answer 👼

I have and the State Booklet says nothing about having to add this income back on the Indiana return.

The good money would be betting that the state is correct.  You could always call Indiana to verify that - I'm guessing the hold time is shorter there than calling Lacerte.
