Go back to Deductions and Credits

Select Your Home

You can either get to your entry through Mortgage Interest, Refinancing or Insurance (1098)

or the next line, Property (Real Estate)Taxes. 

Through one of these you can view your entry and correct.

Did you use the desktop software in "Forms Mode"  ?

 

.....You cannot change it with an override (an override produces that problem)...you must cancel the override to let the number revert to the wrong one and then change the $$ number in the proper place.

 

...... on the Deductions&Credits page.

1) If paid by escrow thru your Mortgage, then at the line labelled "Home Interest, Refinancing, and Insurance"

2) If not paid thru your mortgage (or no mortgage) , then its on the "Property Taxes" entry point

 

Be careful when entering the $$, the value...if you hit a comma instead of the decimal point, it will produce the 83thosand value you showed.

That does not work. When I try to go back it goes to Additional Property Tax

To correct the entry to your property taxes while in TurboTax, follow these steps:

  1. Select Deductions & Credits,
  2. Select Property Taxes,
  3. Select Edit,
  4. Change the information on the screen.

If this doesn't correct the issue, you may need to correct this data through the 1098 (mortgage interest statement) data entry screen by following these steps:

  1. Select Deductions & Credits,
  2. Select Mortgage Interest and Refinancing (Form 1098),
  3. Select Edit/Add,
  4. Select Edit next to your mortgage lender,
  5. Continue through the next few screens until you see Let's get details from your 1098.
  6. Scroll down until you see your property taxes,
  7. Change the information on the screen.

You are close to the correct spot.   ( Don't use the "Search" function either )

 

IF you are using Online software...go to the Deductions& Credits page and make sure you have expanded it to show all possible Deductions& Credits.

 

Then you can choose between the Home Mortgage section entries, or the Property Taxes entry.

BUT...if you entered your property taxes with the Mortgage, the $$ amount there will also show up on the "menu" page alongside the Property Taxes .....those are $$ already entered...and if you actually enter the Property taxes, then you will only be putting in additional amounts beyond the $$ entered with your 1098 mortgage statement.
