I bought my house in late 2015. Part of the closing costs were property taxes owed for 2015. I did not make that payment until January 2016. That amount is not included on the 2016 Form 1098 as the 2015 check was dispersed to me at the time of closing. I received a 1098 from my lender for 2015 but it did not show real estate taxes paid. How do I report that payment this year?
