Ohio vehicle sales tax

I purchased a lease vehicle in Ohio.  Total State taxes paid on this vehicle was $1,974.  Can I include this state sales tax amount under 'Car Registration Fees'?

Ohio vehicle sales tax

No, but you can enter those state taxes paid on that vehicle by following the instructions below:

If you are trying to claim the sales tax paid, TurboTax will help you to decide whether to deduct your sales tax paid or local/state income taxes paid (usually from your paycheck), if you are able to itemize your deductions.  

To enter the sales tax paid when you purchased your vehicle, you can follow the steps below: 

  • Type Sales tax car in the Search box and Select the same phrase in the drop down box 

  • Select Jump to and you will be taken to the sales tax section 

  • Select Continue with Sales Tax then Easy Guide  

  • Enter your state and tax rate or Edit it if you have already entered it.  

  • After finishing that you will see a Major Purchases screen, you should select Yes you did buy major items 

  • You can then enter your car sales tax paid on the Enter Major Purchases screen
