  • You had federally deductible medical and dental expenses.
  • You deducted mortgage insurance premiums.
  • You claimed a deduction for tuition and fees.
  • You had home mortgage debt cancelled or forgiven.
  • You excluded from your federal income an IRA withdrawal that would have been included in your income if you had not lived in a hurricane zone or California wildfire disaster area at the time.
  • You claimed an enhanced casualty loss deduction for personal property damaged by a hurricane or California wildfire.
