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?

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

Happened to me in 2021, inserted a $10,718  deduction, and again this year $2,748. Their is a glitch in the program(premier). Do not know how to fix it, except to refile using line 256000? Is  anybody  able to provide a better solution?

Can you please let me know which TurboTax version you are using - Deluxe, Premier or Home & Business? Online or Download version? Then I will be able to assist you further.
