Okay, here's a link to a HUD-1 closing statement: https://www.hud.gov/sites/documents/1.PDF

To determine the deductible property taxes,
Add:
+ any property taxes that you, as the executrix/personal representative, paid outside of the closing for the time that the estate owned the property
+ any property taxes documented in section 500 (probably lines 510 and 511, but if there is more than one taxing authority, there may be additional lines) - This is where the credit for July 1 - through the close should be documented

Subtract:
- any property taxes documented in section 400 (probably lines 406 and 407, but again, if there is more than one taxing authority, there may be additional lines)

That should be the amount of deductible property taxes.
