I have a County Tax on my Car Registration Tax Receipt (in addition to the Property Tax). Can you deduct this?

I live in South Carolina that has a County Tax as well as a Property Tax on the Car Registration.  I know I can deduct the Property Tax but is the County Tax also deductible and if so, where do you enter it?

The car registration fee for South Carolina is deductible on a federal tax return since it is based on the value of the vehicle.

If the county tax is based on the value of the vehicle then it is deductible.  If the tax is based on some other criteria than the value then it is not deductible.

Thank you.   It appears to be a standard tax fee so you have answered my question.  Only the Property Tax is Deductible.
