Sales Tax Deduction Calculator

If you file a Form 1040, and itemize deductions on Schedule A, you have the option of claiming either state and local income taxes or state and local sales taxes (you can’t claim both). If you saved your receipts throughout the year, you can add up the total amount of sales taxes you actually paid and claim that amount.

Note: If a city has more than one tax jurisdiction sharing the same ZIP Code and County but having different local tax rates, the calculator uses the average local tax rate for those jurisdictions.

U.S. Military District ZIP Codes

The Sales Tax Deduction Calculator has been updated with overseas U.S. Military Zones and Districts where members of U.S. Military pay no sales tax. U.S. Military Personnel who are deployed overseas can use the calculator to determine the sales tax they paid while they were within the United States.
