Customer Question

I am not filing schedule A for itemized deductions, but would like to include sales tax in 1040 Form. Where do I put it?
JA: The Accountant will know how to help. Please tell me more, so we can help you best.
Customer: I have $818 to include in my Form 1040 tax return but I am not filing Schedule A for itemized deductions. Can I still use the tax on Line 62?
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Accountant should know?
Customer: I am 91 yrs old. Have about total $5500 in itemized deductions. So I am using the standard deduction for old people and not schedule A. Can I still include this sales tax on my return?

No, sales tax is listed on the Schedule A or no where. If you do not itemize you cannot claim an itemized deduction.

Do not list the sales tax on the 1040 form
