This tax concession is available if you itemise your deductions instead of taking the standard deduction. This deduction is calculated by adjusting your gross income and various tax exemptions. Furthermore, you can also claim deductions on actual sales tax and use tax paid if you have all the receipts from the purchases you have made.
