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:

  1. Tap the menu icon in the top left corner.
  2. In the Federal Taxes section, select Deductions & Credits.
  3. Tap the option that prompts you to check tax breaks.
  4. Select Your Home, then Property (Real Estate) Taxes.
  5. Answer Yes to Did you pay property or real estate taxes in 2016?.
  6. 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.
