Is sales tax on new personal residence construction deductible? PPC 1040 Deskbook Key Issue 27A says no where the contractor paid the Tax.  

 
But IRS Notice 2005-31 says if it is separately stated in a contact it is deductible. (I Think that's what it says).

 
The 1040 Instructions for this state it in a different way.  Here it states that if your contractor can be considered your agent in your state Etc. Etc. then it is deductible (Even if you did not pay it directly- I think).   NO MENTION IS MADE ABOUT A SEPARATED CONTRACT.

 
 I did a Star search on the Comptroller's Website using "contractor acting as agent"  and got Doc 8910L0992F05 which seems to say contactor cannot designate an agent... Not sure if that applies here.

 
All I have from the client so far on this is "Thats the amount my contractor told me he paid."
 
0811/14 - client advises it was a cost-plus contract and she got invoices from the contractor for materials that he paid -which included sales tax he paid.

​With tax season fast approaching, remember your Chapter discussion board can be a great resource for state and local tax issues as well as utilizing the state tax volunteers.
