I am sorry I confused the issue by my remark on the default rate used in the calculators. I agree it is fairly easy to change the default rate for my particular situation.

I just wanted to know if the deduction for home mortgage interest, points & property tax ownership taken on the Fed 1040 are also allowed for CA. Most Web sites that I searched, mention only the Fed deduction and don't mention that state taxes may also be lower.

Thanks for your time.
