One final question, in Indiana, I could claim the amount I paid for rent on my state taxes, Can I do the same in CA?

I don't remember any kind of renters' credit in California, but my sentence there was up in 1988, so my memory could be faulty or they could have changed the law. You'll find links to the state web sites at the IRS site and could check their forms and instructions.


I lived in CA for over 20 years, and although I wasn't of a tax-paying age for all of them, the ones where I was paying rent and taxes, I never heard of being able to deduct rent from your state taxes.

a little OT- I heard the other day that gas is around $2.05 for reg unl in CA. Its info. like that that makes me glad I don't live there anymore.
