State income tax has, to this point, been deductible from your federal tax, so that’s “0%” Likewise sales taxes, to a point. Don’t count this twice, OK?


This is incorrect.

State income tax is NOT deductible from your federal tax. It's deductible from your taxable income. If state income tax is 10% and you're in a 33% marginal tax bracket, your net state income tax is 6.7% - rounds to 7%.

Last I checked, sales tax and property tax had been removed from the list of taxes that were even deductible from taxable income.
