Monthly Mortgage Insurance Still Deductible, Based on Your Income

Monthly mortgage insurance tax deduction saved as part of the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012

The entire monthly mortgage insurance deduction was on the chopping block, but was restored  for families making under $110,000. Remember the claim about no tax increases for families making under $250,000 and eventually $450,000. The bottom line, this is just another way of getting additional revenues as taxes increase from middle America. 

This change does help out especially home buyers in the future that make $110,000 or less.

We are all scrambling to preserve as many tax deductions as we can. I can assure you, more deductions will be on the chopping block going forward. There are 3 more budget battles brewing in the coming months. Hopefully,  smarter heads will prevail and our politicians focus on trimming the deficit, rather than a focus on more spending.
