Is tax for this purchase can be tax deductible?

Hello Andrea,

Thank you for your question.

Yes, the sales tax paid on the purchase of a new vehicle may be tax deductible on your Schedule A Itemized Deductions. You would only be able to claim the greater of what you paid in either state income tax or sales tax.
