What parts of my Vehicle Registration Tax & Fee Summery can I use for my return?

You may be able to take an itemized deduction on Schedule A for any tax related portion of the registration fee. To be deductible, the fee (or part of the fee) must be based on the value of the vehicle and be charged on a yearly basis. Registration, administrative, or emission testing fees, of tag or plate fees are not deductible for federal purposes. 

Example:  Your state charges a yearly motor vehicle registration tax of 1% of value plus 50 cents per hundredweight. You paid $32 based on the value ($1,500) and weight (3,400 lbs.) of your car. You can deduct $15 (1% × $1,500) as a personal property tax because it is based on the value. The remaining $17 ($.50 × 34), based on the weight, isn’t deductible.
