Hi. Great Question. Do you owe taxes due to not being covered by insurance or due to the itemized deductions being lower? Thank you.

Not sure how to answer that
Tax Professional: ABC Accounting Group, Certified Public Accountant (CPA) replied 3 months ago

You were noting that you owe - do you owe more taxes on your 1040. Thank you.

Got money back last year with lower payments....owe over $1,600 this year
Tax Professional: ABC Accounting Group, Certified Public Accountant (CPA) replied 3 months ago

Hi. It may be due to your itemized deductions being lower. However, I can compare the two returns if you want (2017 vs. 2016) - Turbotax will give you a comparison, as well - would you have which lines were different (2017 vs. 2016)? Thank you.
