To enter the sales tax deduction:

2. Select "Jump to Sales Tax Deduction"

3. Select "Try Sales Tax Deduction Anyways"

4. When asked "How do you want to enter your sales tax info?", select "EasyGuide"

5. Enter your location info and answer the questions

6. Enter your tax rate and continue (Select this link for your state sales tax rate)

7. When asked, "Did you buy any major items?", answer "Yes"
