Are you reporting gambling income equal to or greater than the losses?

He has statements from Casinos showing more loss than gain.  Putting it in Misc deductions isn't carrying forward.

I believe that Gambling Losses which are reported on Schedule A of the 1040 and not subject to the 2% of AGI limit, becomes part of the total of Schedule A.  So if the total of Schedule A is not sufficient to use in the State Return (i.e. less than the standard deduction), the losses will not be used in the State return.

It works on mine. Do you have a Sch A, or standard deduction?
