Important Tax Deductions Ending in 2011

tax deductionsI'm sure that you are busy with Black Friday sales and decorating the Christmas tree and don't want to think about the dreaded 5-letter word -- T-A-X-E-S.  

After just reading a great article, I wanted to share a few important real estate related tax deductions that end in 2011 and there are a good chance that many won't be extended to 2012:


1) MORTGAGE INSURANCE PREMIUM DEDUCTION -   If you itemize your deductions when filing your income taxes, you are allowed to deduct the amount you pay for mortgage insurance each month - as long as your adjusted gross income is $100K or less.  This deduction is set to expire in 2011, but because many people use this deduction, we hope that it will be extended!

FYI -- Mortgage Insurance is also called "MI", "PMI" or "MIP"

2) HOME ENERGY CREDIT - Anyone who owns a home can qualify for a credit of up to $500 if you purchase certain items that conserve energy.


For other deductions that are set to expire in 2011, please read the full article on Inman News.

Great tax tips here Kerry! The home energy credits have been much talked about here in northern CA as well.

I really hope the PMI deduction will be available in 2012 and beyond.  For a 1st time buyer, an extra $75 or $100 each month is a BIG deal, but the fact that it is deductible always makes them feel a little better.
