No.

Sales tax can be used as an itemized deduction, but your income is low enough (if 8,400 includes all of your Social Security Income and IRA income) that you do not have a filing requirement (there are at least 10,350 in standard deductions and exemptions). Therefore itemized deductions will not have any effect on how much of a tax refund you will receive.
