Does Turbo Tax automatically calculate the Northern Residents deduction?? my return shows ZERO deduction??

Hello,

In the Profile section (on the second  What happened for you in 2014? screen), you'll see the following question: are there other deductions such as public transit, union or professional dues or alimony that you want to claim?

Click Yes. 

Then, select the I live in a remote area and qualify for the northern residents deduction checkbox.

Please post back if you have any other questions,

Jacquelyn

I had the opposite problem. I went to the Profile section as you claimed and made sure it said "NO" to other deductions but still my return says I am claiming a Northern Residents Deduction. I am not a Northern resident! I live in Toronto! How do I get out of asking for this deduction?
