Check with an accountant. I'm not an accountant, so this isn't accounting advice. However, you may be advised to submit an amended 2009 return.

Hope that helps.

Hi Charles

Check with an accountant.

You should be able to go back and get the deduction.

Charles,

Your best bet is to speak with an accountant or tax advisor. I think you would have to amend your 2009 taxes but I'm not sure nor do I know the procedures of getting that done. You can try searching your question on a tax website like Turbo Tax. They usually have pretty good information and responses to similar tax related questions on their website.

Charles, good answer below, but you really need to contact a reputable/qualified accountant to know your options.

Best of luck,

Rob
