Federal & State Tax Support 2018-12-14T21:05:17+00:00

State Return Tax Support

Tax support is easy when efiling with 1040Return.com. Upon completion of your Federal Tax Return, 1040Return will transfer your data to the State Return automatically. As a result, you are spared from entering the same data twice. In short, this is a very convenient tool for individual filers.

Some states, however, have special provisions that could affect your return. For example, California State Income Tax laws have special provisions and credits for individuals that filers in that state should be aware of. We discuss this and more below.


Differences Between California State Tax and Federal Law

Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Extended

As mentioned above, California State Income Tax law conforms, with modifications, to federal mortgage forgiveness debt relief for discharges occurring from January 1, 2009 thru 2012. That is to say, Federal law limits the amount of qualified principal residence indebtedness to $2,000,000 for married filing jointly and $1,000,000 for married filing separate. California State Income Tax, however, adds a few distinctions. For example, it limits the amount of qualified principal residence indebtedness to $800,000 – $400,000 for married/RDP filing separate. Additionally, it also limits the amount of debt relief to $500,000 – $250,000 for married/RDP filing separate.

Charitable Donations

Most states will have special deductions for charitable causes. California, for example, allows you to to receive a Donated Fresh Fruits or Vegetables Credit for taxable years beginning on or after January 1, 2012, and before January 1, 2017. This credit is for qualified taxpayers who donate fresh fruits or fresh vegetables to a California food bank. These individuals may receive a credit equal to 10% of the donation’s costs.

We don’t want you to miss any special tax credits that apply to your state. When you complete your Federal tax return, double check your State tax return for such credits. This is especially true if you are filing a California State tax income return.

Tax support is certainly a wonderful thing! We would like to provide you with every single shred of relevant tax related information on this website, but – let’s face it – that’s just not practical. The U.S. tax code is entirely too extensive to give you everything you could possibly need on this site.

If you have a tax question that wasn’t answered on the site, you have direct access to founder John T. Gregory. Mr. Gregory has a lifetime of knowledge and experience that he is willing to lend to you whenever you need it most. In fact 1040 has a team of professionals that can provide advice whenever and wherever you need it.
