You can claim the state and local sales tax amounts you paid for big-ticket items such as:

 - Motor vehicles (motor homes, recreational vehicles, sport utility vehicles, and off-road vehicles)

 - Aircraft or boats

 - Your home, substantial home addition, or major home renovation if:

  a) Your state or locality charges tax on the sale of a home, the cost of a substantial home addition, or the cost of a major home renovation, or

  b) You purchased and paid sales tax on the materials to build a home, build a substantial home addition, or perform a major home renovation.

Living room set, no.
