I purchased a car. However, Turbo Tax is not asking me if I paid tax on a major purchase

To enter the purchase of a vehicle:

  • Log into your return
  • Click on Federal Taxes
  • Click on Deductions and Credits
  • Scroll to Estimates and Other Taxes Paid
  • Click on the Show more button if necessary
  • Click the button beside Sales Tax
  • You will be asked how you want to enter your information.  I highly recommend that you click on Easy Guide

If you use the “Easy Guide” you will work your way through the questions.  Turbo Tax will ask you to:

  • Confirm where you lived, including range of dates
  • What your local Sales Tax Rate was while you were living in the area
  • You will be asked if you made any purchases (please see the screenshot below)
  • You will be asked to enter the information about your car purchase
  • You will confirm the information
  • Then you will go to “Places You Lived” screen.  Click done.
  •  Turbo Tax will go on to ask other questions about nontaxable income
  •  Then you will be given your calculated sales tax deduction.

Turbo Tax performs a calculation based on your income, sales tax rate, major purchases, etc.
