We bought a new house in November last year and this is our first year making the tax on ‘property taxes, mortgage interest, closing costs and points (loan fees ).

    For tax purposes it does not matter when the bank pays your real estate taxes. When you make loan payment which includes taxes the IRS considers that as paid taxes. Your bank will report this number to you. Yes that is the $ 100.43

    Now having said that you can probably log into your loan account at your lender’s website to see when they disbursed excrow funds and paid your taxes if you are curious.

    Or check with your county clerk to see when tax bill was paid.

    My country clerk mailed me a postcard as a receipt that it was paid. I would call if you aren’t sure.
