Can I claim the sales tax deduction?
Yes, you can claim the sales tax deduction as long as you’re itemizing your deductions.
But, keep in mind the IRS only lets you take either the state sales tax deduction or income tax deduction. Not both. In most cases, the income tax deduction will give you the bigger tax break.
