Yes, Wisconsin allows you to itemize on your state return even if you claimed the standard deduction on the federal return. You must enter the itemized deductions into the federal section to have the information pulled to the state return.
If you are printing and mailing your state return, you must include Schedule A from the Federal Return to claim the itemized deductions. Schedule A will not populate within the printed PDF if you chose the standard deduction on the federal return. To make the Schedule A populate:
- Go to the Federal Section
- Itemized Deductions
- Use Standard or Itemized Deduction
- Force to use Itemized Deduction (this will impact the federal return so print the federal return first)
- After making this change, go to Summary/Print to print the state return.
If you are filing electronically, this form will be automatically sent to the state.
