Tax guide

Can I deduct real estate taxes?

Yes, real estate tax is deductible for homeowners, but the amount you can deduct may be limited, based on the total amount of state and local taxes you claim on Schedule A. Beginning with 2018 returns, the total of all state and local taxes—income taxes or sales taxes, real property taxes and personal property taxes—is limited to $10,000 ($5,000 if married filing separately).

If the tax for your home is included in your mortgage payment, your mortgage holder will hold and pay the tax on your behalf. You should receive a statement showing how much real estate tax was paid for your property at the end of the year.
