What if you lived in more than one locality? What if your local general sales tax rate changed during 2006? What if you lived in more than one locality in the same state during 2006? Actual Expenses Generally, you can deduct the actual state and local general sales taxes (including compensating use taxes) you paid in 2006 if the tax rate was the same as the general sales tax rate. Hrblock taxes However, sales taxes on food, clothing, medical supplies, and motor vehicles are deductible as a general sales tax even if the tax rate was less than the general sales tax rate. Hrblock taxes If you paid sales tax on a motor vehicle at a rate higher than the general sales tax rate, you can deduct only the amount of tax that you would have paid at the general sales tax rate on that vehicle. Hrblock taxes Motor vehicles include cars, motorcycles, motor homes, recreational vehicles, sport utility vehicles, trucks, vans, and off-road vehicles. Hrblock taxes Also include any state and local general sales taxes paid for a leased motor vehicle. Hrblock taxes Do not include sales taxes paid on items used in your trade or business.

Hrblock taxes If there is no table for your state, the table amount is considered to be zero. Hrblock taxes Multiply the table amount for each state you lived in by a fraction. Hrblock taxes The numerator of the fraction is the number of days you lived in the state during 2006 and the denominator is the total number of days in the year (365). Hrblock taxes Enter the total of the prorated table amounts for each state on line 1. Hrblock taxes However, if you also lived in a locality during 2006 that imposed a local general sales tax, do not enter the total on line 1.

Hrblock taxes Do not include any additional exemptions you listed on Form 8914 for individuals displaced by Hurricane Katrina. Hrblock taxes What if you lived in more than one locality?   If you lived in more than one locality during 2006, look up the table amount for each locality using the above rules. Hrblock taxes If there is no table for your locality, the table amount is considered to be zero. Hrblock taxes Multiply the table amount for each locality you lived in by a fraction. Hrblock taxes The numerator of the fraction is the number of days you lived in the locality during 2006 and the denominator is the total number of days in the year (365). Hrblock taxes If you lived in more than one locality in the same state and the local general sales tax rate was the same for each locality, enter the total of the prorated table amounts for each locality in that state on line 2. Hrblock taxes Otherwise, complete a separate worksheet for lines 2 through 6 for each locality and enter each prorated table amount on line 2 of the applicable worksheet. Hrblock taxes Example. Hrblock taxes You lived in Locality 1 from January 1 through August 31, 2006 (243 days), and in Locality 2 from September 1 through December 31, 2006 (122 days). Hrblock taxes The table amount for Locality 1 is $100. Hrblock taxes The table amount for Locality 2 is $150. Hrblock taxes You would figure the amount to enter on line 2 as follows. Hrblock taxes Note that this amount may not equal your local sales tax deduction, which is figured on line 6 of the worksheet. Hrblock taxes Locality 1: $100 x 243/365 = $67   Locality 2: $150 x 122/365 = 50   Total = $117   Line 3. Hrblock taxes   If you lived in California, check the “No” box if your combined state and local general sales tax rate is 7. Hrblock taxes 25%. Hrblock taxes Otherwise, check the “Yes” box and include on line 3 only the part of the combined rate that is more than 7. Hrblock taxes 25%. Hrblock taxes   If you lived in Nevada, check the “No” box if your combined state and local general sales tax rate is 6. Hrblock taxes 5%.

Hrblock taxes 0% includes the additional 1. Hrblock taxes 0% Arkansas state sales tax rate for Texarkana and the 1. Hrblock taxes 5% sales tax rate for Miller County. Hrblock taxes What if your local general sales tax rate changed during 2006?    If you checked the “Yes” box and your local general sales tax rate changed during 2006, figure the rate to enter on line 3 as follows. Hrblock taxes Multiply each tax rate for the period it was in effect by a fraction. Hrblock taxes The numerator of the fraction is the number of days the rate was in effect during 2006 and the denominator is the total number of days in the year (365). Hrblock taxes Enter the total of the prorated tax rates on line 3. Hrblock taxes Example. Hrblock taxes Locality 1 imposed a 1% local general sales tax from January 1 through September 30, 2006 (273 days). Hrblock taxes The rate increased to 1. Hrblock taxes 75% for the period from October 1 through December 31, 2006 (92 days). Hrblock taxes You would enter “1. Hrblock taxes 189” on line 3, figured as follows. Hrblock taxes January 1 - September 30: 1. Hrblock taxes 00 x 273/365 = 0. Hrblock taxes 748   October 1 - December 31: 1. Hrblock taxes 75 x 92/365 = 0. Hrblock taxes 441   Total = 1. Hrblock taxes 189   What if you lived in more than one locality in the same state during 2006?    Complete a separate worksheet for lines 2 through 6 for each locality in your state if you lived in more than one locality in the same state during 2006 and either of the following applies. Hrblock taxes Each locality did not have the same local general sales tax rate. Hrblock taxes You lived in Texarkana, AR, or Los Angeles County, CA. Hrblock taxes   To figure the amount to enter on line 3 of the worksheet for each locality in which you lived (except a locality for which you used the table on page 7 to figure your local general sales tax deduction), multiply the local general sales tax rate by a fraction. Hrblock taxes The numerator of the fraction is the number of days you lived in the locality during 2006 and the denominator is the total number of days in the year (365). Hrblock taxes Example. Hrblock taxes You lived in Locality 1 from January 1 through August 31, 2006 (243 days), and in Locality 2 from September 1 through December 31, 2006 (122 days). Hrblock taxes The local general sales tax rate for Locality 1 is 1%. Hrblock taxes The rate for Locality 2 is 1. Hrblock taxes 75%. Hrblock taxes You would enter “0. Hrblock taxes 666” on line 3 for the Locality 1 worksheet and “0. Hrblock taxes 585” for the Locality 2 worksheet, figured as follows. Hrblock taxes Locality 1: 1. Hrblock taxes 00 x 243/365 = 0. Hrblock taxes 666   Locality 2: 1. Hrblock taxes 75 x 122/365 = 0. Hrblock taxes 585   Line 6. Hrblock taxes   If you lived in more than one locality in the same state during 2006, you should have completed line 1 only on the first worksheet for that state and separate worksheets for lines 2 through 6 for any other locality within that state in which you lived during 2006. Hrblock taxes If you checked the “Yes” box on line 6 of any of those worksheets, multiply line 5 of that worksheet by the amount that you entered on line 1 for that state on the first worksheet. Hrblock taxes Line 7. Hrblock taxes    Enter on line 7 any state and local general sales taxes paid on the following specified items. Hrblock taxes If you are completing more than one worksheet, include the total for line 7 on only one of the worksheets. Hrblock taxes A motor vehicle (including a car, motorcycle, motor home, recreational vehicle, sport utility vehicle, truck, van, and off-road vehicle). Hrblock taxes Also include any state and local general sales taxes paid for a leased motor vehicle. Hrblock taxes If the state sales tax rate on these items is higher than the general sales tax rate, only include the amount of tax you would have paid at the general sales tax rate. Hrblock taxes An aircraft or boat, if the tax rate was the same as the general sales tax rate. Hrblock taxes A home (including a mobile home or prefabricated home) or substantial addition to or major renovation of a home, but only if the tax rate was the same as the general sales tax rate and any of the following applies. Hrblock taxes Your state or locality imposes a general sales tax directly on the sale of a home or on the cost of a substantial addition or major renovation. Hrblock taxes You purchased the materials to build a home or substantial addition or to perform a major renovation and paid the sales tax directly. Hrblock taxes Under your state law, your contractor is considered your agent in the construction of the home or substantial addition or the performance of a major renovation. Hrblock taxes The contract must state that the contractor is authorized to act in your name and must follow your directions on construction decisions. Hrblock taxes In this case, you will be considered to have purchased any items subject to a sales tax and to have paid the sales tax directly. Hrblock taxes   Do not include sales taxes paid on items used in your trade or business.
