can i claim the taxes on the property if my name is not on the mortgage but is on the deed?...im just wondering if i can claim the taxes?
if there are 2 or more of you who own the home, you would not all be able to claim real estate taxes as your own expense. honestly, if you didn't pay them i don't see a way in which you could claim them justifiably. however, as owners, you are all responsible to see that taxes get paid, so presumably any or all (by portioning out) of the owners can claim said taxes.

Hi missysaigecorey,

As far as I know, you will not be able to claim the deductions on taxes if your name is not on the mortgage or if you are not paying the mortgage dues. As you are not paying the taxes, you have no right to claim deductions on taxes.

Thanks
