North Carolina Standard Tax Deduction

Taxpayers in North Carolina who want to itemize deductions on their state return must also itemize deductions on their federal return. State returns cannot be filed with itemized deductions if they are not also claimed on the federal return. Conversely, if a tax filer itemizes deductions on a federal return, they can choose to itemize or claim the standard deduction on the state return.

All filer types can take advantage of the standard deduction. In 2023, single filers can claim a standard deduction of $12,750. Those married filing jointly can claim a standard deduction of $25,500. All filers should complete Form D-400 to claim the standard deduction.

While calculating your North Carolina tax refund, note that personal exemptions for dependents are not allowed on state returns.
