Glad you caught that. Not many do. In the 'Your Home' Section under the Deductions & Credits tab the program asks you to enter property taxes twice. don't do it. Only enter them once. Which place you enter it doesn't matter. But leave the other one blank. Otherwise, your property tax deduction will be doubled, which of course would be incorrect.
