Tax Deduction for PMI

 

Thinking about purchasing or refinancing a home? There may be good news for you if you have a mortgage that requires PMI!

Your PMI payment may be tax deductible (if the contract was issued after 2006)! This may give you better financial opportunities to help you purchase your next home!

Here are some of the guidelines with this new law:

• The tax deduction applies only to mortgages that are closed in 2007 and after.

• Income limits apply. You are eligible for the full deduction if your adjusted gross income is $109,000 or less. The amount you can deduct phases out rapidly after that and no mortgage insurance deduction is available if you make more.

It is recommended to speak to a mortgage professional and your accountant in order to explore all of your options available.
