Property Taxes

It looks like we’re right at the cusp of itemizing vs standard deduction so I want to get this right:

I own my home and pay property taxes but the schedule is weird here. We pay in Nov 2023 and Feb 2024 to pay 2023 taxes. Im assuming I want to list 2023 property tax PAYMENTS (which will be half for 2022 property tax year a d half for 2024 property tax year) for my federal taxes?

Yes, you can deduct property taxes billed and paid within the tax year (calendar year).

And keep in mind the SALT (state and local tax) limit on itemized deductions is $10k. So of you are already close to that with state taxes, property taxes may not help get you into itemized territory.

Got it, thanks!
