Why dont I qualify for the property tax deduction at this time? TT says my best option is to itemize and I have already entered plenty of other deductions.

Even when I get to the end of the deductions section, TT notes that I said I owned a home but didn't enter any home expenses and leads me through that section again. But when I enter my property taxes, it still says that I don't qualify.

The property taxes should be included in your itemized deductions.  Try to delete your original entry and then follow the steps here to enter your property taxes again.  Use the Review tab then go back to force a full return calculation.

1.  Sign into your TurboTax Premier desktop version.

2. In the upper right search for property taxes-real estate

3. Jump to property taxes-real estate.

4. Continue to enter your property tax amounts. (see image attached)

To enter the information in the TurboTax online version use the steps here.

You can go directly to the area to enter the document by following these steps.
