Kentucky allows you to itemize if your itemized deductions are greater than $2,650 per individual. When taking the $300 above line contribution to the federal return, Lacerte forces the standard deduction on the KY return which is incorrect and does not allow us to take the greater of the standard or itemized.
The instructions for the KY return regarding the Schedule A Itemized Deduction and a direct answer from the state of KY says in part:
You may itemize your deductions for Kentucky even if you do not itemize for federal purposes.
