My wife's brother has yet to pay the property taxes on their
My wife's brother has yet to pay the Peruvian property taxes on their rental property for 2015, but, of course, our US tax deadline is looming. How does this work in terms of filing here in the US. Can I still include these taxes as a deduction off the rental income?

First, we have used Turbo Tax to do our income tax returns
First, we have used Turbo Tax to do our income tax returns for last two years. For tax year 2015, we owed $6000 in taxes, which we paid when we filed our return electronically. But Turbo Tax said our estimated taxes due would be $1850 per quarter, instead of $1500.(which is $6000 divided by 4). I thought the estimated taxes were calculated on the amount due at the time of filing the return, which was $6000. Is this true?I am paying the $1500 amount, instead of the $1850, but not on the schedule exactly laid out by Turbo Tax, but by Jan 2016, the total amount (which will be $6000) of the estimated tax will be paid. Anyway, if I have not paid the estimated taxes exactly on time, will we get penalized when we file our 2016 tax return? If so, how much?

I am a US citizen who lived in Japan for 15 years through
I am a US citizen who lived in Japan for 15 years through August 2014. I moved with the same company back to the United States in August 2014. My retirement plan that I accumulated during my time in Japan was consolidated into an account managed and housed by Fidelity in the UK. I have not been making contributions since that time, neither has my company - the amount simply rises and falls in step with my portfolio. I am nowthinking of taking some of the money out of that retirement account (again, it is overseas in the UK) and bringing it to the US to put towards a down payment on a house. I was wondering how much that money would be taxed in that instance.
