Itemized Deductions

Determining the Allowable Portion

Allowable Portion

For Puerto Rican filers who itemize, the itemized deductions must be allocated based on total gross income from all sources (including Puerto Rico source income). This allocation decreases each itemized deduction.

Use the formula to calculate the allowable portion of a deduction for each itemized deduction. Enter the allowable portion on the taxpayer’s Schedule A. For more information, see Publication 1321.
