Hi , We have capital gain from the sale of the partnership

Customer Question

Hi ,

We have capital gain from the sale of the partnership based in India. And we have paid foreign taxes in India.In the 1040, we have included the capital gain in the schedule D and taken the foreign tax credit for the foreign taxes paid.And for the NY State Tax I have two questions: (1) Do we have to include the capital gain and (2) can we get the foreign tax deduction or credit for the sales tax. Thanks a lot for your help.
