The new tax reform bill that has been agreed upon by the House and Senate, but not yet signed into law as of December 18th, seeks to limit the deduction of property taxes as well as state and local income taxes for 2018 and beyond. While the bill is not finalized, it might make sense for you to be proactive on this issue. If you pay more than $10,000 per year between these taxes, you may want to consider the following actions.
- Pay your second property tax installment prior to year-end on your primary residence and second home.
- Pay your final quarterly state income tax payment, normally due January 15th, by December 31st.
We suggest that you reach out to your tax professional to see if this is recommended for your unique situation. This is not a blanket recommendation but it’s something that should be explored prior to year-end.
