Sales Tax Deduction in Question

Washington (WVLT) - The sales tax deduction you claim on your income tax return every year is once again in doubt.

The deduction saves more than a half-million Tennesseans more than $200 million a year on federal taxes.

The House budget resolution passed Thursday does not mandate an extension of the tax break, which expired at the end of last year.

Some state lawmakers say not extending the tax cuts will create a nearly $400 billion tax hike over the next five years.
