Property Taxes and Deductions

When you own a home or parcel of land, property taxes literally come with the territory. Property taxes fluctuate greatly from town to town, and payment policies vary from lender to lender. Given this variation, potential home buyers should carefully consider property taxes as an additional, ongoing expense of home ownership. But owning a home can also be a huge benefit at income tax time.

This section includes tips on using your home as a tax shelter, in-depth information on property taxes, and helpful resources from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
