You may deduct the sales tax you paid up to the amount that your resident state, Texas, allows.
To enter sales tax in to TurboTax:
- Click the Federal Taxes tab at the top (or the Personal tab if using Home & Business)
- Then, Deductions & Credits
- Scroll down to the "Estimates and Other Taxes Paid section", click Show more
- Next to "Sales Tax" click Start or Update
You would enter the place(s) you lived, and all major purchases you made including your out-of-state purchase and the rate you were taxed in that state. TurboTax will calculate what your Deduction Allowed will be for your out of state purchase.
