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.
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.
