Instructions for Schedule A say--

Line 5
The deduction for state and local taxes is
generally limited to $10,000 ($5,000 if
married filing separately). State and local taxes subject to this limit are the taxes that you include on lines 5a, 5b, and
5c

The limit applies to state and local taxes including income and property taxes. That's the SALT limit which they propose to raise to $80K in the Build Back Better bill passed by the house.


But that's a cap on a specific type of itemized deduction. It is NOT 'itemized deductions capped at $10k' And given the current standard deductions, there would really be no point in itemizing deductions if they were actually capped at $10k
