Tax claimed on property - who gets what
      #508728 - 03/01/09 08:21 AM

I have a question for seasoned divorced/separated people - how do you claim the taxes for the real estate? i don't know if he is going to claim it all or not. He does not tell me which way he does. Expects me to know. Anyway, if I claim half of it and he has claimed all of it - what happens? We have been separated through all of 2008.

The one who pays it, is the one who can claim the deduction.

So how am I supposed to file? According to what the IRS forms say, it says if you are married and were separated through all of one year, then you cannot claim a standard deduction if the other one claims other deductions.

*IF* you paid the property tax and you are legally separated and you have proof of payment then you take your legal deduction.

Whatever your stbx does or does not do is between him and the IRS.

It is not your problem.
