Montana Itemized Deductions
Montana allows itemized deductions, and you can claim the same itemized deductions on your Montana tax return as you do on your Federal tax return. You must choose between itemizing your deductions and choosing the Montana standard deduction, so it's generally only worth itemizing your deductions if your itemized total is more then the Montana and Federal standard deductions.
