Hi Anil,
I was wondering if anything has changed regarding claiming foreign tax paid in US tax return?

This year it is now allowing me to claim any foreign taxes that I have paid. Please share if you have some info.

I don’t understand your question.
What do you mean by ‘any foreign’ taxes?

You can claim Indian income tax that you have already paid as foreign tax credit.

I am sorry for not being very clear. In the Turbotax (online tax-filing software), this year I am unable to claim Indian income tax (for NRO account) that I have already paid as foreign tax credit in my US tax return.

I could do this last year.

I was wondering if recent Tax reform by US govt has changed something that is preventing me from claiming Indian income tax that I have already paid as foreign tax credit in my tax return?

I think you can add up all Indian tax and then enter it in Foreign tax paid field.
I have not seen turbo tax this year yet.

Can you share a screen shot and then I can suggest.
