When itemizing on Schedule A you add everything up, then subtract the standard deduction. What's left is what goes on your 1040.

Taxes always matter.

No. The calculations are done based upon your tax bracket. In other words, if you were in the 15% bracket for every 1000 the savings is $150.

I could've written this post too. The property taxes on Long Island are ridiculous.

Real estate taxes are used as a reduction of salary for taxes, yes. Doesn't mean you are getting the tax amount back when come tax time.

Your mortgage interest is deductible also.

But you seem to be under the impression (as have others been in the past)that when people say "it's deductable on your taxes" that the IRS just sends you back the amount of your property tax plus anything else you're owed. That's not how it works. It's a deduction on your taxes. No one can possibly tell you how much you'll get back on your tax return for the year you buy your house.
