Property taxes: I

I refinance my property in Feb 2020. My property taxes were held by Escrow for the 

April 10th payment, which was paid by Escrow and not by the Mortgage company that I was assigned. So the mortgage company sent me a 1098  but left box 10 blank ( since they did not pay my taxes).  I contacted the mortgage company and they referred me to the escrow company. . I spoke with the escrow officer, who informed me that they do not issue a1098, and that I  should use my final closing statement in order to get the tax credit. When I go to the  property section it will not allow me input unless I have a 1098. How do I claim these property tax $1,562.20

Yes, you can claim the property taxes in your return.  I would suggest to try the following.

  1. Log into Turbo Tax

  2. Go to federal>deductions and credits
  3. Your home>show more
  4. The second sub-heading should say property taxes
  5. Enter them separately in this section.
  6. I tested this in my Turbo Tax test account and it worked fine without a 1098 form.

When entering your real estate taxes, you must enter them through the federal screens and the deduction will flow to your state return.

 

To enter, please follow the instructions below: 

  1. Open your return. 
  2. Search real estate taxes with the magnifying glass tool at the top of the page.
  3. Click the Jump to real estate tax link at the top of the search results.
  4. Follow the on-screen instructions.
