Both homes.  The circuit breaker asks for the total amount you paid in property taxes and half your sewer and water charges.  Total the amount you paid for each property.

Thank you!  That makes sense but I got confused because Turbo Tax automatically entered the address for our new home.  Can I change it to our former home?   There is a question that asks the assessment of the home on January 1, 2018.  Do I list the former home value since that was where we lived on January 1, 2018?

I would use the value if whichever home you lived in on January 1.
