can you deduct car registration if a texas resident

can you deduct vehicle registration fees and taxes if you are a texas resident

    Texas does not have a personal property tax, so none of the registration is deductible.
    • The software tool allows me to take a deduction. I find it odd that the tool would accept the information and in turn allow for me to get additional refund.

    I based my answer on a Google search that indicated these states had a personal property tax:

    Alabama
    Arizona
    California
    Colorado
    Georgia
    Iowa
    Indiana
    Kentucky
    Louisiana
    Michigan
    Minnesota
    Mississippi
    Missouri
    Montana
    Nebraska
    Nevada
    New Hampshire
    South Carolina
    Washington
    Wyoming

    Also note this comment ("Texas does not calculate your car registration fee based on your vehicle’s value. Therefore, you can’t take the deduction allowed in other states.") from http://www.dmv.org/tx-texas/car-registration.php .

      People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

      1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
      2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
      3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
      4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
      5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
