It would be really helpful if the Jersey City tax office could post "Preliminary assessments for the 3rd and 4th qtrs, 'subject to the affects of the tax re-val" on the online website." They could just mirror the 1st and 2nd qtr payments. That would help get around the most recent IRS Statement.
You wouldn't be able to deduct prepayments for the 3rd and 4th quarters of next year on your 2017 tax return if they are just "preliminary assessments" and tax rolls not yet certified for those quarters. Doesn't work that way, and no town in America is going to rush out its tax rolls for all four quarters of next year just to give people an extra deduction for this year.
