Welcome to JustAnswer!

My name is***** will assist you today.

From what you have stated, no your ex husband would not be able to deduct the property tax since you are paying the tax.

___

Please see below an excerpt and link from IRS.Gov -Topic Number 503 - Deductible Taxes

"To be deductible, the tax must be imposed on you, and you must have paid it during your tax year. "

https://www.irs.gov/taxtopics/tc503

You can only deduct home mortgage interest if all the following conditions are met.

A qualified home is:

Main home.

You can have only one main home at any one time. This is the home where you ordinarily live most of the time.

Second home.

A second home is a home that you choose to treat as your second home.
