Yes - You have the choice to claim either the state income tax deduction (for any income taxes paid to any state) or the state sales tax deduction (for only your state of residence) but you cannot claim both.

Therefore, if the income taxes that your spouse paid to ND are more than your TX sales tax deduction, you will want to claim the ND income taxes on your Schedule A.
