And yes receipts are the issue.

That is your and not the CPAs problem.

My wife and I purpose literally hundreds of items on the internet each year. My feeling is over half of my purchases charge tax, but I don't know. Further with regard to those who charge sales tax, I do not have a clue if they charge me the correct amount - since we have state and local sales taxes.

You don't need to know. Add up the purchases and sales tax paid, then report the amounts. Whether or not an individual purchase was correct isn't an issue.
