TaxAct® will calculate the general sales tax for your state for Schedule A (Form 1040) Itemized Deductions, Line 5.
In the Itemized Deductions section of the Federal Q&A, you can enter the name of the state and the number of days you lived in that state. TaxAct will then calculate the state general sales tax based on the optional state sales tax and local sales tax tables in the IRS Instructions for Schedule A.
