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 Federal. On smaller devices, click the menu icon in the upper left-hand corner, then select Federal
- Click Itemized or Standard Deductions in the Federal Quick Q&A Topics menu to expand the category and then click Taxes Paid
- On the screen titled Enter state and local income taxes you paid during 2018 you will see the state withholdings from your W-2. There is also a field on this screen for other taxes. If the state withholdings were entered again inadvertently, you can delete them.
