IRS guidance seemed pretty clear to me....if you have not been billed for it, you cannot pay early and deduct it. TJ was just spewing nonsense. No way awpitt can show a bill for the 2018-2019 property taxes either.But, IRS, on same day, said it would only work if the taxes were actually assessed in 2017. What the heck does assessed actually mean? The tax bill was printed and mailed? If yes, that isn't done until 2018.
time to move on.
