Yes, if you claimed the standard deduction on your federal return, you could still itemize your deductions on the Delaware return.
If you file a married filing separate return, both spouses must claim the same deduction (standard or itemized).
Enter your itemized deductions in the Federal Section:
- Select my forms
- Itemized Deductions.
Additional itemized deductions are also available in the State Section. The additional standard deduction is allowable only for those persons 65 years of age or older and/or blind, electing to use the Delaware standard deduction. If you elect to itemize your deductions, you do not qualify for the additional standard deduction regardless of meeting the other criteria.
