I got my 1098
form and it shows on line 1 how much mortgage interest received. On line 5, it says real estate taxes paid with a negative total. How could this be? My property taxes are paid from the escrow account, so could the negative mean the amount taken out of the account? I'm assuming I should just put the amount in as a positive because placing a negative figure makes no sense. Has anyone ever had this shown up on their 1098?
