    This only benefits those who are paying more than $10.000 in Property/State taxes

    Could not find whether Calvert would accept prepay. As far as the comment only benefits taxes greater than $10k, don’t think that is the case. If the higher standard deduction results in not itemizing next year, than you would not be able to take the property tax deduction in 2018. However, if paid in 2017 and itemizing in 2017, I would be able to include the 2018 property tax prepay as a deduction on the 2017 tax return.

    If I am wrong, please let us know.
