If you qualify for the sales tax deduction (only a few states typically qualify), you may get some small benefit.

The sales tax deduction allows you to track your own sales tax for the year, or calculate a default value based on your income. If you use the table/calculation, sales tax on large expenditures (cars, major home improvements, etc.) may be added on top of the standard amount.

I'm in no way a tax professional, but I did a little research this last year. Because we live in FL (no state income tax), we qualified for the sales tax deduction, and had purchased a new car and remodeled our kitchen the previous year.
