I'm in the camp that there should be no incentives for taxes for anything.

Would you argue that potato chips shouldn't be taxed, or that produce should be?

I wasn't talking about sales tax, only yearly tax filings. Anything that is on an itemized tax return should be moved elsewhere into programs specifically for giving money for that instead of being given a coupon off of what you owe.

If there is some reason you report produce on your tax documents then no, it should not be there.
