Can I deduct the sales tax on home renovation or construction?

SOLVEDby TurboTax1335Updated December 12, 2023

Yes, if all of these conditions apply:

  • You're itemizing.
  • You're taking the sales tax deduction, as opposed to the state/local income tax deduction.
  • The tax rate is equal to your state and local general sales tax rate.
  • You (or your contractor acting as your agent) purchased the building materials and paid the tax.
