North Carolina Standard Tax Deduction

Taxpayers in North Carolina that 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, he or she can choose to itemize or claim the standard deduction on the state return.

All filer types can take advantage of the standard deduction. Single filers as well as those married filing separately can claim a standard deduction of $8,250. Heads of household and individuals married filing jointly can claim a standard deduction of $13,200 and $16,500 respectively. All filers should complete Form D-400 to claim the standard deduction.

Personal exemptions for dependents are not allowed on North Carolina state returns.
