    Medical 7.5% North Carolina

    For 2017, question whether North Carolina conformed or decoupled from Federal 7.5% Medical expense deduction. Unable to find anything definitive. Thank you for your assistance.

    Have you read the following (it's clear and answers your question) or called the NC state agency?

      Line 21 of Schedule S shows to use the Federal amount.

        I'm holding one NC return on extension because this issue is still in question. The conflict was supposed to be resolved after the NC General Assembly met in May, but I still haven't found anything to indicate there has been a change. Also, Drake continues to show this as a warning in their software. I emailed Drake about two weeks ago, and they responded that NC still has not acted on it. They promised they would remove the warning when NC makes up their mind. I trust Drake to follow through.

        Filing under either assumption runs a 50% chance of needing to amend at some point in the future. Fortunately, it doesn't affect too many people. For now, I'm content to just wait it out.

            It looks as if the issue is not "whether" but "how much" (7.5% or 10% determination) of federal medical deductions can be used on a 2017 NC income tax return.

            NOTHING surprises me that comes out of the NCDOR or the NC Legislature. I'm just hoping the 2018 tax rules/forms will perhaps be available before February 2019.

            Here is Drake's take on the matter:

              Based on my research of VA, NC, and SC tax law and returns this year, all three neglected to take up this last minute change by the feds before their legislative sessions ended for 2018. Also, the software was never updated to show that they did. So the 10% exclusion is in effect on those returns as far as I know.
