I tried to deduct sales tax on a new manufactured home but Turbo tax says I can't. Because % are not the same In Florida because of local tax add ons
While you can deduct sales tax if you itemize, and can deduct sales tax on large purchases in addition to regular sales tax, you cannot report the sales tax paid on a major purchase that has sales tax calculated at a different rate.
You can only report the different sales tax percentage for the purchase of motor vehicles, but not for boats or other major purchases, per the Internal Revenue Service. You can find this information by clicking here and look at page 4 of 19 under Actual Expenses.
