Can I claim the 2015 property taxes I paid in 2016 even though I didn't own the house in 2015?
Yes, you can deduct the property tax because you owned the home at the time you pay the tax. And you can deduct the tax in the year you paid it, which is 2016, no matter what year the property tax applies to.
To claim the property tax paid on your inherited house
Go to Federal
Deductions and Credits
Property (Real Estate) Taxes.
