My Mom died in 2010 and the house was placed in trust to be eventually sold and split 4 ways amongst the sibs. I moved it, to live with and take care of my mentally challenged brother. The problem is, I pay for the taxes and insurance which is quite a lot! I am also the Executor. My question is, since I am the Executor, and pay the taxes, can I claim them on my tax return? I am not married and I do not make a heck of a lot of money, so this arrangement is draining me ! Thanks to anyone who can help !
