Hello and thank you for contacting JustAnswer. We appreciate the opportunity to be of service to you.
Is there anywhere in the intervie process that you are asked about Schedule 1 or Schedule 1A?
I was not asked about Schedule 1 or 1a. As you probably know, they just ask the questions about your situation rather than referencing Schedules. There are various questions that ask about properties you own, but nothing about rent paid.
I am not specifically familiar with H&R Block software. However, was there a question during the interview process that asked if you paid any "property tax". New Jersey actually provides a credit for property taxes paid, either directly as an owner or indirectly as a tenant paying rent.
Look for a question that addresses "property taxes" Her is a link to an article that addresses the concept:
I know of no income phase-out for that credit.
Positive feedback is greatly appreciated.
