Question: I am a teacher attending college with less than 10credits to graduate with a BA Elementary education. I claimed a deduction for tuition and fees on the federal return 2011 line 34 which reduced my Adjusted Gross Income. I placed this adjusted amount on my Maryland return 502. Maryland state is claiming that I claimed a deduction on my federal return, but did not include a corresponding addition modification on my Maryland return and adjusted an addition modification in the amount of the tuition and fees deduction taken on my federal return.
Which Maryland Code apply to my circumstance? My research came upon Maryland Code > Tax 10-218 Please help me resolve this matter>
