Why are you losing your sales tax deduction? The combination of property tax and sales tax that can be deducted just has to be less than $10k, so if your property tax is less than $10k, you will be able to use up the rest of the $10k limit with the sales tax deduction. If your property taxes are more than $8k, then you will probably lose some of your sales tax deduction, but not all. But it's still allowable to take the sales tax deduction, as long as you are under the SALT limit of $10k.

Hi AJ, I just saw your response. I was under the impression that the sales tax deduction had not been extended for 2018. Seems you are right - as always, lol. Good to know!
