    What is your motivation for keeping every single receipt and adding up the sales taxes that you pay? It seems absurd. To be honest I doubt that you did that.
    We get a refund at the end of the year...well...we used to. But, adding the sales tax to an itemized return will save you hundreds to thousands of dollars. Some years it is the difference between writing a check and getting a check.

    I'll get a refund enough to set aside for a Mac Mini whenever they decide to update it (or if I become desperate enough, another windows machine), so I can have some security if this laptop decides to go south.

    I paid dearly. Not to mention all the other taxes and fees and licenses I paid throughout the year. But I did get a decent return, nonetheless.

    I bought two round-trip tickets and a week's stay at a fat condo at John's Pass, FL with it. I truly wasn't expecting it. So when I got it, I figured, since I had already considered it gone, why not just blow it on a good time?

    Paid just under 30%.

    Refund was in the neighborhood of $12,000.

    I had to amend my taxes and the IRS still owes me 500 bucks.

    You get an A+ for record keeping. When I took a tax class at (A certain company) the instructor had seen one client that saved all of his receipts to add his sales tax to his itemized deductions. He had been doing tax returns for 20 years. The same client did it every year.

    That's quite an accomplishment.
