Lois - Best to check with a CPA. Realtors are not tax experts.

It looks like the answers that have been posted apparently pertain to individual tax returns, not expenses listed on Schedule E for business property.

Hi Lois:

Please see the link for California Franchise Tax Board on deducibility of Mello-Roos taxes. It depends on the nature of the Mello-Roos; mostly, you can not deduct that if it's for local benefits and improvements; but you shall be able to deduct the maintenance and repair related Mello Roos.

Here is the link

However, the best thing to do is to take to your Tax Accountant to get their professional advise.
