Can car tires be counted to figure sales tax dedution

Were you asking if the tax on the tires could be added to the sales tax deduction from the IRS table or were you intending to add up all the sales taxes you paid last year?

Can car tires be counted to figure sales tax dedution

No, a vehicle counts towards the sales tax deduction, but not pieces of the vehicle.

What you may be able to do is deduct the tires under business vehicle expenses if it's a business vehicle you're referring to.

To Enter Tire Expenses:

1. Select "Business" at the top of the screen

2. Choose "Continue", then "I'll choose what I work on"

3. Select "Start" next to "Business Income and Expenses"

4. Select "Edit" next to your business name

5. Scroll down to Business Expenses

6. Now select "Update" next to "Business Vehicle Expense"

7. Select "Edit" next to your vehicle(Or enter it when prompted)

8. Continue answering the questions until you are asked "Do you want to see if your actual vehicle expenses give you a bigger deduction?" and answer "Yes"

9. On the next page you will see a place to enter an amount for tire expenses
