Regarding choosing whether state income tax or specified sales

Regarding choosing whether state income tax or specified sales tax items is greater, if the items are not necessarily vehicles, boats or airplanes, what is considered a large purchase and what other items could be viewed as a large purchase according to the IRS? We live off-grid so have hefty expenses with items like rebuilding an engine on a generator, a portable sawmill, diesel and fuel costs, wood pellets for three outdoor furnaces, culverts, even a bad impulse buy of a super expensive leather chair, etc., iphones, computers, could these be included? and if they add up substantially, and I've tracked many little sales tax items that well extend the state income tax amount, why can't my tracked sales tax amount be considered as the final number to use even if it's not all sales tax paid?

Hi Megan, I am wondering what my tax obligations are: I am a proprietary limited company based in Australia trading on Amazon US. My products are shipped from China directly to Fulfilled by Amazon warehouses in Tennessee and New Jersey before being shippeddirectly to US purchasers. It is a very small business with 80 units ( retailing at approx USD 12.99 each) sold so far - about half from each warehouse. I began trading on Amazon in December 2014 and have only recently realised I may need to pay tax on productsshipped from FBA warehouses. I would appreciate your advice. Best regards, Angela
