How do I know if my vehicle registration fees are tax deductible?

If your state charges personal property taxes as part of your vehicle registration costs, you can deduct only the personal property tax portion that is based on the value of your vehicle. You must also be charged the fee on a yearly basis.

You can check with your state’s DMV or review your billing statement to get a breakdown of the fees and what each was for. Many states will charge fees based on the weight and the value, among other things but you can only deduct the portion of the fee associated with value.
