Tax Tip of the Day: Mortgage Points



Many homeowners overlook another tax break available for points paid to get a home loan. In some cases, points also could shave tax bills for folks who refinanced or got an equity loan or line of credit.

Each point is 1 percent of the loan amount. Lenders charge points as a way to make a profit, and borrowers generally pay points in exchange for lower mortgage rates.

If you paid points, the amount should be listed on the 1098 statement from your lender. This document also notes how much mortgage interest you paid. Both of these deductible amounts go on line 10 of Schedule A. If the points aren’t on that statement they quite possibly will be on your closing documents or HUD statement.

Please contact our office for more information on this subject and how it pertains to your specific tax or financial situation.
