Can I deduct Texas sales tax on purchase of a utility trailer on fed return?

Generally, no, unless it is one of the items listed below: 

  • motorized vehicle (car, truck, RV, motorcycle, etc. – sorry, no mopeds).
  • An aircraftboatmobile home, or manufactured home, but only if you paid the general sales tax rate (otherwise it doesn't apply).
  • Building materials for a major renovation or substantial addition to a home, if you paid the general sales tax rate yourself or your contractor was authorized to purchase these materials per your instructions or building contract.

Otherwise, answer No, even if the items you purchased were expensive or really big.

Still not sure? Here's the offical IRS definition.
