Where do I enter the property or real estate taxes I paid?
If it's for rental property you own, your property/real estate taxes are entered along with your other rental expenses.
Otherwise, you'll enter them in the Deductions & Credits section:
- In the search box, search for the exact phrase “real estate taxes” and then click the "Jump to" link in the search results.
- Answer Yes to the question Did you pay property taxes in 2016?.
- Enter your property/real estate taxes on the next screen.
Tip: If you own additional properties for personal use (for example, a cabin or timeshare), make sure to include the property/real estate payments for those as well.
