When you enter your state withholdings from your W-2, they automatically transfer to Schedule A as an itemized deduction and do not need to be entered again in the program.
- From within your TaxACT return (Online or Desktop) click on the Federal Q&A tab
- Click Itemized Deductions to expand the category and then click Taxes Paid
- On the screen titled Itemized Deductions - State and Local Taxes you will see the state withholdings from your W-2. There are also 2 fields on this screen for other taxes. If the state withholdings were entered again inadvertently, you can delete them.
