You cannot claim both a deduction and a credit for the same charitable contribution on your Arizona return.

My Utah state ID is only 11 digits

If you are entering an Employer's state ID number in Box 15 on your Credit Karma Tax return, you need to enter your 11 digit code followed by WTH.

  • If the Employer's state ID number in Box 15 on your W-2 is “77777777777”, you would enter “77777777777WTH”

Can’t Edit Information

Generally, if the entry of a form is initiated in the Credit Karma Tax software, the form must be completed before the information can be deleted by the member.  

Oregon Political Contribution Credit

The $50 tax credit for donating to a political cause is not supported by CKT at this time.  

Married Filing Separately on Combined Return

CKT software chooses the most beneficial filing status at the state level, based on the information entered whether that is married filing jointly or married filing separately on combined income.  

PARTIAL State/Multiple State Returns:

Part-year resident returns cannot be processed through Credit Karma at this time although we are actively pursuing a larger array of options next tax season.

NONRESIDENT STATE RETURNS:

Unfortunately we do not accept non resident returns this year, but we hope to next year!

A nonresident individual engaged in business in the United States during the year are required to file.
