My mother passed away in 2017, leaving behind a $100k delinquent real estate tax bill. After the house was transferred to my name, I took out a mortgage to pay for those taxes. Am I allowed to deduct that on my 2017 tax return. The taxes were from 1997-2017.
And you can deduct mortgage interest on a second home subject to the limitations...
