Can tax deductions be carried over? Well, in most cases the answer is going to be no. You can carry forward charitable contributions that exceed 50% of your AGI investment interest, in most cases, and points obtained on a mortgage. Those would be the ones you can. So if you’d have other things like mortgage interest, property taxes, if you paid them this year, you have to deduct them this year. It’s not one of those things where you can say, “Well it doesn’t really qualify so I’ll roll it over to next year.” Can’t be done. So make sure you’re doing things in advance. Think about it. You can pay your property taxes in advance or hold off. You need to know your taxes. Call me if you’ve got any questions.
