lorenzo2 sez: I've never heard of federal taxes being deductible on a state return.

pmarti replies: I'm told Colorado allowed this deduction at one time, and I'm pretty sure Iowa does today.


Well, so it does. I just had a look at the Iowa form, which has a few other interesting items:

- Chickadee Checkoff, a contribution to a state Fish and Wildlife fund;

- Corndog Checkoff, a contribution to help fund capital improvements to the State Fairgrounds, where I guess they sell a lot of corndogs.

They also allow a deduction for your auto registration fee, calculated as follows: deduction = fee - (weight of car)/250. If it's a pickup truck full of corndogs, you may get no deduction at all.
