Can I deduct real estate taxes on my vacation home?

You may be able to deduct real estate taxes you paid on a vacation home you own and rent out when you or your family isn’t using it., To be deductible, the real estate tax must be uniformly assessed at a like rate on all real property throughout the community levying the tax.

The tax must go to general community or government purposes, and not be payment for any special privilege or service given you.
