I closed on my house on 11/28/16. The property taxes were paid by the seller. I made my first payment on the loan on 1/1/17. I didn't get any forms from the bank.

Do I add anything to the tax deductions part?

You won't be able to claim mortgage interest until next year, but you could claim the seller-paid property taxes from your closing documents.  To enter, go to:

Federal Taxes > Deductions & Credits > Your Home > Property Taxes

This won't benefit you if you are taking the standard deduction.
