Customer Question
My wife and I...

My wife and I are retired on Social security and Pay Oregon Property tax on our home. Our only income is social Security and we have not been filing fed tax returns . Should we ? Can we claim Property taxes as Tax paid like with holding tax and get a refund with no taxable income

Accountant's Assistant: The Accountant will know how to help. Is there anything else the Accountant should be aware of?

Having no other income I believed there was no benefit to filing and IRS never question us either because we had no income reported I guess .

Property taxes reduces tax on ordinary income. As you have no ordinary income to claim, filing a return just to report the property taxes will not produce a refund for you.
