Sales Tax - More Than Five States

The TaxAct® program does not support the entry of more than five states on Schedule A (Form 1040) Itemized Deductions. If you have more than five states to enter, you will need to manually calculate each state, then enter one total.

To manually calculate the tax, use the calculator on the IRS website, or use the worksheet and table in the instructions for Schedule A.

To claim your State and Local General Sales Tax Deduction in the TaxAct program, go to our Sales Tax - Entering in the Program FAQ.
