Why is my sales tax deduction lower than last year?

Here are a few reasons why this may have happened:

  • Your adjusted gross income (AGI) is lower this year than last year
  • The size of your family changed
  • You moved to a new location with a different tax rate
    • The IRS changed its Sales Tax deduction table.
    • Your state changed its sales tax rate

Any or all of those could have lowered your deduction.
