Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
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.
