CA sales tax on manufactured homes

I purchased a new manufactured home in California in 2023.  The home was manufactured in California.  California does not charge a sales tax onto the end buyer but, the dealer has to pay it.  However, the dealer is allowed to pass it on as a cost to the buyer (splitting hairs).  My quote for the home itemizes "tax" and the amount that was added on to the home but, my final invoice does not itemize this tax because they are not legally allowed to tax me on the sale.  My question is, can I itemize this as California Sales Tax that I paid in 2023?

No; in the situation you described, you weren't actually charged a sales tax to be remitted to California. In order to claim a deduction for taxes paid, you would have to pay the tax.

Thank you for the response.  This has to be some CA special interest tax thing.  Again, thank you for the follow up.
