Yes, you can deduct all of the above expenses you paid for your vehicle used in your business, if you choose to enter your actual expenses, rather than the standard mileage deduction. 

Deduct them under the Business Vehicle Expense section.

Thank you Paula. One more question if its ok. My tax preparer used both the actual cost and standard mileage methods on my taxes last year. Which method should I use this year? I know an amendment may need to be done if this is an error. After doing amend, can I use the standard, since really both were used last year?

If you begin with deducting actual expenses in the first year, then you can't switch to the standard deduction. It really is just a personal preference regarding which one. Standard deduction is less to keep up with, but the rate is down a few cents from last year. Yes, you could amend, then use the standard.
