A deduction up to $2,500 ($1,250 if married filing separately) is available to taxpayers who paid property taxes paid on their main home.
You cannot take this deduction:
- On your summer or vacation home
- If you claim the Lake County residential income tax credit for the same tax year
- If any portion of your property taxes paid to your principal residence were listed on your federal Schedule C, E, or F then you cannot deduct that amount.
How do I find out how much I paid in Indiana property tax?
Your Indiana county will send you a statement of property taxes paid. If you have spring and fall installments, add the amounts together to find the total amount paid. If you do not receive the county statement, check your 1098 (if paid through your escrow account) or check with your local treasurer's department.
To enter this deduction within your account, please follow the steps below:
- Edit (three dots)
