What sales tax payments can I claim on my federal taxes?
You can claim anything you paid sales tax on, as long as it wasn't used for trade or business. You can claim online purchases, purchases from a different state, new cars, motorcycles, even new carpet.
We can help you figure out how much sales tax you paid using EasyGuide in the Sales Tax section of Deductions & Credits.
If you traveled throughout the year or made significant purchases in multiple areas, the sales tax you paid could vary. In this case, it may be best to select Enter All My Receipts when you get to the Sales Tax section of Deductions & Credits. You’d add up all the sales tax you paid and tell us the grand total. Just be sure to keep all of your receipts for your records.
