Get pin number 2011 taxes Even if the buyer agrees to pay the delinquent taxes, the buyer cannot deduct them. Get pin number 2011 taxes The buyer must add them to the cost of the property. Get pin number 2011 taxes The seller can deduct these taxes paid by the buyer. Get pin number 2011 taxes However, the seller must include them in the selling price. Get pin number 2011 taxes Examples. Get pin number 2011 taxes   The following examples illustrate how real estate taxes are divided between buyer and seller. Get pin number 2011 taxes Example 1. Get pin number 2011 taxes Dennis and Beth White's real property tax year for both their old home and their new home is the calendar year, with payment due August 1. Get pin number 2011 taxes The tax on their old home, sold on May 7, was $620. Get pin number 2011 taxes The tax on their new home, bought on May 3, was $732. Get pin number 2011 taxes Dennis and Beth are considered to have paid a proportionate share of the real estate taxes on the old home even though they did not actually pay them to the taxing authority. Get pin number 2011 taxes On the other hand, they can claim only a proportionate share of the taxes they paid on their new property even though they paid the entire amount. Get pin number 2011 taxes Dennis and Beth owned their old home during the real property tax year for 126 days (January 1 to May 6, the day before the sale). Get pin number 2011 taxes They figure their deduction for taxes on their old home as follows. Get pin number 2011 taxes Worksheet 22-1. Get pin number 2011 taxes Figuring Your Real Estate Tax Deduction — Taxes on Old Home 1. Get pin number 2011 taxes Enter the total real estate taxes for the real property tax year $620 2. Get pin number 2011 taxes Enter the number of days in the real property tax year that you owned the property 126 3. Get pin number 2011 taxes Divide line 2 by 365 (for leap years, divide line 2 by 366) . Get pin number 2011 taxes 3452 4. Get pin number 2011 taxes Multiply line 1 by line 3. Get pin number 2011 taxes This is your deduction. Get pin number 2011 taxes Enter it on Schedule A (Form 1040), line 6 $214 Since the buyers of their old home paid all of the taxes, Dennis and Beth also include the $214 in the selling price of the old home. Get pin number 2011 taxes (The buyers add the $214 to their cost of the home. Get pin number 2011 taxes ) Dennis and Beth owned their new home during the real property tax year for 243 days (May 3 to December 31, including their date of purchase). Get pin number 2011 taxes They figure their deduction for taxes on their new home as follows. Get pin number 2011 taxes Worksheet 22-1. Get pin number 2011 taxes Figuring Your Real Estate Tax Deduction — Taxes on New Home 1. Get pin number 2011 taxes Enter the total real estate taxes for the real property tax year $732 2. Get pin number 2011 taxes Enter the number of days in the real property tax year that you owned the property 243 3. Get pin number 2011 taxes Divide line 2 by 365 (for leap years, divide line 2 by 366) . Get pin number 2011 taxes 6658 4. Get pin number 2011 taxes Multiply line 1 by line 3. Get pin number 2011 taxes This is your deduction. Get pin number 2011 taxes Enter it on Schedule A (Form 1040), line 6 $487 Since Dennis and Beth paid all of the taxes on the new home, they add $245 ($732 paid less $487 deduction) to their cost of the new home. Get pin number 2011 taxes (The sellers add this $245 to their selling price and deduct the $245 as a real estate tax. Get pin number 2011 taxes ) Dennis and Beth's real estate tax deduction for their old and new homes is the sum of $214 and $487, or $701. Get pin number 2011 taxes They will enter this amount on Schedule A (Form 1040), line 6. Get pin number 2011 taxes Example 2. Get pin number 2011 taxes George and Helen Brown bought a new home on May 3, 2013. Get pin number 2011 taxes Their real property tax year for the new home is the calendar year. Get pin number 2011 taxes Real estate taxes for 2012 were assessed in their state on January 1, 2013. Get pin number 2011 taxes The taxes became due on May 31, 2013, and October 31, 2013. Get pin number 2011 taxes The Browns agreed to pay all taxes due after the date of purchase. Get pin number 2011 taxes Real estate taxes for 2012 were $680. Get pin number 2011 taxes They paid $340 on May 31, 2013, and $340 on October 31, 2013. Get pin number 2011 taxes These taxes were for the 2012 real property tax year. Get pin number 2011 taxes The Browns cannot deduct them since they did not own the property until 2013. Get pin number 2011 taxes Instead, they must add $680 to the cost of their new home. Get pin number 2011 taxes In January 2014, the Browns receive their 2013 property tax statement for $752, which they will pay in 2014. Get pin number 2011 taxes The Browns owned their new home during the 2013 real property tax year for 243 days (May 3 to December 31). Get pin number 2011 taxes They will figure their 2014 deduction for taxes as follows. Get pin number 2011 taxes Worksheet 22-1. Get pin number 2011 taxes Figuring Your Real Estate Tax Deduction — Taxes on New Home 1. Get pin number 2011 taxes Enter the total real estate taxes for the real property tax year $752 2. Get pin number 2011 taxes Enter the number of days in the real property tax year that you owned the property 243 3. Get pin number 2011 taxes Divide line 2 by 365 (for leap years, divide line 2 by 366) . Get pin number 2011 taxes 6658 4. Get pin number 2011 taxes Multiply line 1 by line 3. Get pin number 2011 taxes This is your deduction. Get pin number 2011 taxes Claim it on Schedule A (Form 1040), line 6 $501 The remaining $251 ($752 paid less $501 deduction) of taxes paid in 2014, along with the $680 paid in 2013, is added to the cost of their new home. Get pin number 2011 taxes Because the taxes up to the date of sale are considered paid by the seller on the date of sale, the seller is entitled to a 2013 tax deduction of $931. Get pin number 2011 taxes This is the sum of the $680 for 2012 and the $251 for the 122 days the seller owned the home in 2013. Get pin number 2011 taxes The seller must also include the $931 in the selling price when he or she figures the gain or loss on the sale. Get pin number 2011 taxes The seller should contact the Browns in January 2014 to find out how much real estate tax is due for 2013. Get pin number 2011 taxes Form 1099-S. Get pin number 2011 taxes   For certain sales or exchanges of real estate, the person responsible for closing the sale (generally the settlement agent) prepares Form 1099-S, Proceeds From Real Estate Transactions, to report certain information to the IRS and to the seller of the property. Get pin number 2011 taxes Box 2 of Form 1099-S is for the gross proceeds from the sale and should include the portion of the seller's real estate tax liability that the buyer will pay after the date of sale. Get pin number 2011 taxes The buyer includes these taxes in the cost basis of the property, and the seller both deducts this amount as a tax paid and includes it in the sales price of the property. Get pin number 2011 taxes   For a real estate transaction that involves a home, any real estate tax the seller paid in advance but that is the liability of the buyer appears on Form 1099-S, box 5. Get pin number 2011 taxes The buyer deducts this amount as a real estate tax, and the seller reduces his or her real estate tax deduction (or includes it in income) by the same amount. Get pin number 2011 taxes See Refund (or rebate) , later. Get pin number 2011 taxes Taxes placed in escrow. Get pin number 2011 taxes   If your monthly mortgage payment includes an amount placed in escrow (put in the care of a third party) for real estate taxes, you may not be able to deduct the total amount placed in escrow. Get pin number 2011 taxes You can deduct only the real estate tax that the third party actually paid to the taxing authority.
