Washington (WVLT) - The sales tax deduction you claim on your income tax return every year is once again in doubt.
The deduction saves more than a half-million Tennesseans more than $200 million a year on federal taxes.

Some state lawmakers say not extending the tax cuts will create a nearly $400 billion tax hike over the next five years.
