Is the "major purchase" entry with information about value purchase cost, sales tax paid and tax rate included with the sales tax I enter (I enter my own numbers) or do I not show as "major purchase" and just added it into my own numbers.
Yes, your major purchases are included in the calculation of sales taxes when you enter your own purchase information.

- Row i shows the amount that will carry over to Schedule A.
