I just got my dandy 2 year tag renewal in the mail from the MVA.

I'm wondering if I can deduct this off of my taxes since I'm itemizing - 1/2 this year and 1/2 next year.

Does anyone know about this? I've tried googling this topic but I can't find anything specific to Maryland on this.

No. It's a fee, not a tax.

Never heard of anyone ever considering this...I don't think you can do it.

You might be able to if the vehicle is used solely for business. It would then be a cost of operation, as would insurance gas, etc.

To the state, fee does not equal tax, but to the person who pays them, there is no difference between a fee and a tax.
