1. Deduct 100% of your mortgage interest.This is easy to find on your 1098 you should have received from your bank.

2. Don’t forget your real estate taxes. Also easy to obtain from your tax assessor's office. Often, this info will also be on the 1098 you receive from your lender for your mortgage interest.

3. If you are a first time homebuyer or haven’t owned a home in 3 years and you purchased last year, you may qualify for the First Time Homebuyer $8000 tax credit.

4. If you owned a home but lived in it for 5 of the last 8 years, you may qualify for a $6500 Move Up Homeowner tax credit.

5. Don’t overlook home improvements. There is a $1500 credit available for energy saving home improvements.

Please investigate these options with your CPA and take advantage of these tax deductions.

Hi Michelle, Good points, many first time home buyers don't understand these income tax basics.

That's why I rely on my CPA and I highly recommend homeowners have a professional tax preparer or CPA help them catch all deserved deductions.
