Deducting Vehicle License Fees

If you itemize deductions on your federal return, you may deduct part of your Minnesota vehicle license fee as personal property tax on your federal Schedule A (Form 1040). You may only claim this deduction for passenger automobiles, pickup trucks, and vans.

How do I deduct my vehicle license fees?

Subtract $35 from the registration tax paid for each vehicle you own, and include the total on line 7 of Schedule A. You may not deduct other amounts such as plate fees and filing fees.

How do I find the registration tax I paid?
