itemized deduction carry-over
In 2008 I had a large state tax balance due when I filed in 2009. In 2009, my income has been substantially less, therefore, after I finish itemizing my deductions, I essentially have 0 taxable income. I expect to have a higher income in 2010 and would like to carryover some of this year's deductions to next year. Am I able to defer itemizing all or part of my 2008 state taxes (paid in 2009) on my 2009 return and use/itemize the money in future tax years?
