You may ONLY carryover some deductions into next year which you are not allowed to use.
For instance - if you make large charitable contributions and may only use a part of that amount - unused part may be carryover into next tax year.
But you may not carryover the deductions just because you do not benefit from these deductions.
Sorry if you expected differently.
You may not choose to report deduction this year or next year.
But you may only report in the year deductible expenses were actually paid.
However - to be specific - you will need to list your deductions and I will verify for you.
property taxes $ 1,722.00 - may be ONLY deducted for tax year in which they are paid.
Church tithe and food pantry $ 4,671.00, AIDS Walk, $ 25.00, - these are charitable contribution - you may carry to the following year ONLy charitable contributions above 60% of your AGI (adjusted gross income) - the rest may be only deducted in the year paid.
Medical $ 6,232.00, - may be ONLY deducted for tax year in which they are paid.
mortgage interest $ 5,191 - may be ONLY deducted for tax year in which they are paid.
Let me know if any clarification needed.
