I see from his 2009 taxes that he filed a schedule L in order to raise their standard deduction by $1000 for real estate taxes.

Compare the Caution notice at the top of the 2010 form to that on the 2009 form. It appears that there was an option for real estate taxes in 2009 that does not appear on the 2010 form.

2009: File this form only if you are increasing your standard deduction by certain state or local real estate taxes, new motor vehicle taxes, or a net disaster loss.

2010: File this form only if you are increasing your standard deduction by certain net disaster losses or new motor vehicle taxes paid in 2010 for certain vehicles purchased in 2009.
