How do I claim the sales tax deduction?

Federal>Deductions and Credits>Estimates and Other Taxes Paid> Sales Tax.

Sales tax is an itemized deduction.  If your state has a state income tax, you have to choose between using the deduction for your state tax paid OR the sales tax deduction, whichever is higher.  The TT process will suggest one or the other as you prepare your return.
