On the Depreciation Worksheet, below the heading Depreciation, Amortization, and Section 179, select the check box if you are preparing a state return and the state depreciation, 179 deduction, or basis for the property is different from the federal amounts.
If you select this check box, both the Federal and State columns in this section must be filled in. Even when the amounts are the same for both.
Go to the Section 179 section of the Depreciation Worksheet and above line 1, enter the state section 179 expense maximum allowed if it is anything other than $25,000.
