Drawing a blank!  New client I am having to manually enter her info.  She has Federal Carryover to 2019 of Deductible SALT.  Where do I enter this amount?  

Thanks in advance!

Are you sure about that carryover?

Me too... the return I'm trying to finalize would have a carryover of over $ 400,000 IF there is one.

Former Chump... umm.... AllStar.

Do you mean 2018 state tax balance due paid in 2019?

No.  This is SALT carryover that was in excess of $10,000 in previous years.

On the General Information sheet from 2018 tax return:

 

Carryovers to 2019

Federal Carryovers

Deductible State and Local Taxes     $3,259

That is "NOT" excess of SALT.  

That is state tax paid in 2019 FOR 2018 - usually the 4th estimate for 2018 paid in Jan 2019, or the amount owed for the 2018 return paid in April 2019.

It has absolutely nothing to do with the $ 10,000 SALT limitation.  IF the amounts match, it's one of those odd coincidences that occasionally happen.

She didn't pay any state tax for 2018 in 2019 - so that's not it.

 

Thanks anyway, got my answer from an local CPA friend.

I'm curious - what was the answer?

Me too....  "cuz there isn't a SALT carryover, local answer non-withstanding.

I'd hate for future searchers to see this & be confused.

Altho - I can't think of ANY way to easily make Lacerte take more than $ 10,000, as long as the PEBKAC doesn't exist.
