Deductions & credits

Yes, as an itemized deduction.  However, you only gain a tax benefit if your total itemized deductions (property taxes, state taxes, charitable contributions, mortgage interest)  exceed your standard deduction.

The vehicle property tax that is deductible is the tax imposed based solely on the value of the vehicle.  Taxes based on weight or axles or other criteria are not deductible.
