Check with your CPA for the right answers for your specific situation. You should definitely be able to write off your property taxes paid. You may also be able to write off some of your closing costs. Bring your final HUD1 to your CPA and they can give you a more definitive answer.

Check with your CPA, but right now you should be able to deduct some real estate taxes if you pay those.

Since you paid cash - there won't be any prepaid interest. The only thing you can deduct is the real estate taxes. But check with a CPA to make sure.

Best of luck

Give your HUD-1 to your CPA.

Usually it is only prepaid interest.... and it doesn't add up to much.
But certainly worth a shot....

Property taxes, if you have other deductions that you could take that would exceed your standard deduction.
I suggest you contact an accountant.
