If your locality imposes a general sales tax, you can claim this for your State and Local General Sales Tax Deduction.

To claim your State and Local General Sales Tax Deduction in the TaxAct program (if you need help accessing the sales tax section of the TaxAct program, go to our Sales Tax - Entering in the Program FAQ):

  1. From within the sales tax deduction section of the TaxAct program, continue with the interview process until you reach the screen titled Choose your sales tax calculation method, then click Table Amount.
  2. On the screen titled What is your local sales tax rate?, click the data entry field below Local general sales tax rate, and type the amount.
  3. Continue with the interview process to enter your information.

The TaxAct program will automatically provide the state sales tax rate, and give instructions to figure your local sales tax rate.
