Hello out there!
My husband was laid off early this year (in Jan), and as such our income will be significantly lower than in years past, as well as much lower than we expect it to be next year, when hopefully, construction will pick back up here in NC.
So, my question is, for tax year 2009, would it make any sense, and is it even possible, to delay our property tax payment until after the new year, and then claim it on our 2010 return? (this would be in addition to our 2010 prop taxes)
*our 2009 tax bill is $2682 due by 1/5/2010
*our AGI for 2009 will be around $26,000
*our AGI for 2008 was $52,000 (and hopefully will be for 2010)
Links to other areas / pages that discuss this topic would be helpful too. Thanks so much!!
