Please note: You may be able to take an itemized deduction on Schedule A for any tax related portion of the registration fee (if you are not itemizing - this won't affect your refund). To be deductible, the tax portion must be based on the value of the vehicle and be charged on a yearly basis. Registration, administrative, or emission testing fees, or tag or plate fees are not deductible for federal purposes. Often, your registration form will show separate lines for each item, be sure you deduct only the portion listed as for a vehicle tax. You may be able to deduct the other fees on your state return.
