    Schedule A - state income tax

    Hi.  On Schedule A, on the line where I can deduct state and local income taxes, I entered the amount withheld from my W-2.  Can I also add in the amount on my 1099-R of state tax that was withheld from a normal distribution we took from our IRA?  We have not had an IRA distribution before so I don't know.  Is that state tax withheld considered to be state income tax?  Thank you.

    Dear katromero:

    You are spot on.  ALL state withholdings and estimated payments are totaled and entered on that line for deduction on Schedule A.

    Hope this helps in preparing your returns!
