The actual error is "You cannot deduct sales tax paid on this item since the rate was different than the total general rate for this location, 8.2500%"  The summary says: sales tax paid 4,747.20 sales tax calculated at total general rate 4,139.38

This is when I try to enter a major purchase

I figured it out.  I was entering what my invoice said was the tax paid.  the calculated amount is what it should actually be.  I just calculated it myself.
