Tax Deduction Consulting: Mortgage Interest

What is My Tax Deduction for my Mortgage Interest?

There are many benefits of home ownership over paying rent. The main ones are the building of equity and tax deductions. What is my tax deduction for my mortgage interest?

What is my tax deduction for my mortgage interest? This is one of the most common questions asked by tax payers who itemize deductions. It has long been understood that the very nature of long term mortgages on home purchases have some excellent tax deduction benefits. One reason for this is that for the first years of a mortgage, almost the entire payment is interest. Equity grows slowly at first. So, the new home buyer and mortgage payer finds virtually his entire house payment falling into the interest category.

The IRS regulations on interest deductions for home mortgages are not extremely complex as IRS regulations go and they seem to have a lot of common sense behind them. The underlying principle seems to be to separate real estate transactions that are for the purpose of providing a residence from those that are intended for investment and business reasons.

The Grandfathered loan is any mortgage taken out prior to October 13th, 1987. The Home Acquisition Debt is a mortgage taken after October 13th, 1987, for the purpose of buying, building, or improving a qualified home. The Home Acquisition Debt is limited to 1 million dollars, or $500,000 if married filing separately. This means you can only claim the interest on that limit, not that you can not spend more for a home. The Home Equity Loan is lim...
