Sorry that I didn't specify that you get one or the other deduction, but not both. I should have made that clear that you either get the sales tax deduction or the deduction for your state income taxes paid, whichever is greater. As a side note, the sales tax deduction includes major items such as a car, RV, boat, etc., but also there is a table amount for each state that calculates what the sales taxes are that you may have paid for a particular income level and locality.
