No mortgage interest or property tax pages until 1/12/2019
November 16, 2018
Latest updates have enabled property tax and mortgage interest to be added, only 12 days after the deadline for paying 2018 estimated taxes. Thankfully the numbers are exactly the same as what I got using the workaround of adding them as a charitable donation.
Got a notification from TT Online that it won't be ready until 1/17/2019. Until then this software is completely useless and can't be used to make tax estimates. The workaround I've used is to put my mortgage interest as a charitable donation to calculate Federal Tax and added property tax to that to calculate State Tax (I'm well over the $10K limit with state income tax alone for SALT for Federal). I did try just reducing my total income by those amounts but that doesn't work because TT quietly screws everything up by inserting the standard deduction even if you have specified itemized deductions.
Update 11/16/2018 - Still no mortgage or property tax but now I owe $6K less on my federal tax. Turns out the earlier version wasn't correctly applying the child tax credit and I have three children under the age of 17.
I bought this early thinking I could get an estimate of my taxes but when I got to the section for Mortgage Interest Deduction I got a popup saying the forms aren't available so I couldn't go any further. Same for Property Tax deduction.
