Vacation home in United States. Property taxes paid each year. Are they deductible as "foreign taxes paid" even though the property generates no income?

you are not implying that you dont have a supervisor who is reponsible for reviewing the returrns that you are doing data entry for?

these are really really basic principles of taxation you are getting hopelessy wrong here, so it would be a good idea to not do data entry for any tax return for a third party that your supervisor will not be reviewing

a person sumbmitting a return with this deduction could incur punishment of imprisonment for a term not exceeding 2 years, so that person should ensure that they have a suitably qualified accountant who only enters correct and lawful things into the tax return.

People come to ProFile for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
