7 MUST KNOW Tax Advantages, just for being a Homeowner

by Tom Tommy Mortgages Mellett

When you’re evaluating how much home you can afford, make sure you factor in the tax advantages of homeownership.

Owning your home not only allows you to build wealth through appreciation, but it can also reduce the amount of income tax you pay every year.

Here are seven tax benefits for homeowners.

1. Homebuyer tax credits

If you purchase your first home before April 30, 2010, you’re entitled to a tax credit of up to $8,000. If you currently own a home, but sell it to purchase another home before April 30, 2010, you’re eligible for a federal tax credit of up to $6,500.

2. Deductions for loan fees

Typically, you can deduct the “prepaid interest” you paid when you got your mortgage loan. That includes points, loan origination fees, and loan discount fees listed on your settlement statement, even if the seller paid those fees for you. Each time you refinance your home, you can deduct prepaid interest fees.

However, you must meet certain requirements to take the prepaid interest deductions when you purchase or refinance your home. Check with your accountant to be sure you’re following the rules.

3. Property tax deductions

In the year you purchase your home, you’re entitled to deduct the real estate taxes you paid at the closing table. You can continue to deduct the property taxes you pay each year.

4. The mortgage interest deduction

Every year, you can deduct the amount of interest and late charges you pay on your mortgage and home equity loans, though there are limitations. If you’re required to purchase private mortgage insurance (PMI) because you made a downpayment of less than 20% on your home, you can also deduct those premiums as mortgage interest expenses.

5. Home office expenses

If you have a home office you use only for business, you may be eligible to deduct the prorated costs of your mortgage, insurance, and other expenses related to that space. The government scrutinizes home-office deductions closely. Be sure you’re entitled to the deductions before claiming them.

6. The costs of selling your home

In the year you sell your home, you can deduct the costs of selling it, including real estate commissions, title insurance, legal fees, advertising, administrative costs, and inspection fees. You can also deduct decorating or repair costs you incur in the 90 days before you sell your home.

7. The gain on your home

If you lived in your home for at least two of the previous five years before you sell it, the government lets you to take up to $250,000 of profit on the sale of your home tax free. That amount is doubled for married couples. This deduction isn’t available on rental or second homes.

 

The government also allows you to subtract from your home sale profit any amounts you spend on improvements, such as window replacement, siding, or a kitchen remodel. Those deductions are in addition to the tax credits you can receive in 2010 for making energy-saving upgrades. Money invested for routine maintenance and repairs doesn’t count.

Who Needs Renters Insurance?

Who Needs Renters Insurance?

If you rent your home or Apartment and don’t think you need rental insurance, you are mistaken, but you are definitely not alone. In fact, over two-thirds of the 81 million renters in this country do not carry renters insurance. This is a disturbing fact when you think about the financial devastation that could befall these renters if an unfortunate event were to occur. Perhaps you’ve heard or thought about renters insurance, but you wonder, “Do I really need rental insurance?” Continue to read this blog; we’ll answer this question for you with some of the best reasons for investing in renters insurance.

You’re Not a Homeowner, So Why Have Insurance?

This is one of the most common protests offered by renters who avoid rental insurance. After all, if you don’t own your home, what is the purpose of having property insurance? The answer is that, without a rental insurance policy, your personal belongings are unprotected. You may not be responsible for the actual structure of your dwelling, but you certainly have financial responsibility for the personal items contained within it.

What about the Landlord’s Policy?

Another objection given to the purchase of rental insurance is that the landlord’s policy already covers everything. This is actually untrue. The landlord’s policy strictly covers the structure of the apartment building and nothing else. In fact, some policies don’t even go that far if a tenant is responsible for causing the damage. In other words, if you leave your bathtub water running and do water damage to your apartment and the one below, you might be liable for the damages.

What Do I Have That Needs Insurance?

Some renters justify going without renters insurance because they rationalize that they don’t really have anything that is valuable enough to warrant coverage. But did you know that the average renter has almost $30,000 of personal belongings that are not covered by the landlord’s policy? Could you afford to pay $30,000 to replace your possessions? More than likely, the answer is no. Aside from your regular possessions, if you have especially valuable items, like jewelry, collections, furs, etc., you should also consider a rider on your rental insurance policy. A rider allows you to bolster your coverage for certain items of extraordinary value.
