What types of tax payments can be included in itemized deductions?
Certain types of tax payments will be considered tax deductible if the taxpayer chooses to itemize instead of taking the standard deduction. Taxes will be deductible in the year that they are paid to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). For the individual taxpayer tax payments that are deductible consist of real estate taxes, state & local income taxes, and sales taxes.
There are certain types of taxes that are nondeductible. This would include personal property taxes, federal income taxes, business/rental property taxes, and inheritance taxes.
