Is state sales tax paid on home construction or renovations tax deductible?

Sales tax on home construction or renovation is deductible if your state, county, or locality imposes a sales tax on home sales or renovations. You must purchase the materials and pay the tax, or when the contractor is your agent under the contract and must follow your directions on construction decisions, it will be as if you purchased the items and paid the sales tax. The tax rate must be the same as the general sales tax rate and you must itemize deductions.
