Maybe. If each of you paid one-half of the property tax, then each may deduct one-half. A deduction may be taken only by the person who was required to pay it and who actually paid it. If only one spouse paid the property tax, that spouse may deduct it. If one spouse itemizes deductions, the other spouse must also itemize, even if the first spouse is entitled to all of the deductions; i.e., the other spouse has few or no deductions.
