Hi. Great Question.
State income taxes you had paid are deductible on Schedule A.
The property taxes you paid for that year are deductible. Any taxes that you paid for your property, that were not part of any basis to come to your gain or loss is deductible (Schedule E).
The tax return is based on cash-basis. So, if you paid a tax for the year before in the next year, it should be deductible on the next year's return.
Transfer tax should be part of your basis, to determine the gain.
Let me know if you have any questions.
Hi. Good Question. No, only if you have a capital loss.
