Colorado amended tax return 2011 The seller is treated as paying the taxes up to, but not including, the date of sale.

Colorado amended tax return 2011   Do not divide delinquent taxes between the buyer and seller if the taxes are for any real property tax year before the one in which the property is sold. Colorado amended tax return 2011 Even if the buyer agrees to pay the delinquent taxes, the buyer cannot deduct them. Colorado amended tax return 2011 The buyer must add them to the cost of the property. Colorado amended tax return 2011 The seller can deduct these taxes paid by the buyer. Colorado amended tax return 2011 However, the seller must include them in the selling price. Colorado amended tax return 2011 Examples.

Colorado amended tax return 2011 This is your deduction. Colorado amended tax return 2011 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. Colorado amended tax return 2011 (The buyers add the $214 to their cost of the home. Colorado amended tax return 2011 ) 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).

Colorado amended tax return 2011 This is your deduction. Colorado amended tax return 2011 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. Colorado amended tax return 2011 (The sellers add this $245 to their selling price and deduct the $245 as a real estate tax. Colorado amended tax return 2011 ) Dennis and Beth's real estate tax deduction for their old and new homes is the sum of $214 and $487, or $701. Colorado amended tax return 2011 They will enter this amount on Schedule A (Form 1040), line 6. Colorado amended tax return 2011 Example 2. Colorado amended tax return 2011 George and Helen Brown bought a new home on May 3, 2013. Colorado amended tax return 2011 Their real property tax year for the new home is the calendar year.

Colorado amended tax return 2011 These taxes were for the 2012 real property tax year. Colorado amended tax return 2011 The Browns cannot deduct them since they did not own the property until 2013. Colorado amended tax return 2011 Instead, they must add $680 to the cost of their new home. Colorado amended tax return 2011 In January 2014, the Browns receive their 2013 property tax statement for $752, which they will pay in 2014. Colorado amended tax return 2011 The Browns owned their new home during the 2013 real property tax year for 243 days (May 3 to December 31).
