That's the wrong answer. It doesn't matter how he filed the original return. What matters is whether the unclaimed deductions are large enough to move him into itemized deduction territory. If so, file the amended return, include a Schedule A, and claim whatever refund he is due.

Not necessarily. If these taxes are enough that they would have taken you over the standard deduction, you can file an amended return with itemized deductions and get a refund of the difference in tax liability.

Thanks Ira,#29

The taxes were only $50 a year. Trying to make sure that all the deductions/basis were used.
