Tax Deductions and write-offs for Santa Clarita Homeowners for 2015

Posted on: April 10th, 2015 by Lauren Nemeschansky 17,795 Comments

Tax deductions for homeowners

All of the Santa Clarita homeowners should take advantage of the tax deductions, write-offs and tax breaks available for this year in 2015.

Mortgage interest tax deduction

Homeowners should take a mortgage interest tax deduction. To qualify, the mortgage must have some sort of residence associated with it. All forms of homes and residences would qualify such as a mobile home, trailer, house-boat, condominium or house as long as the tax payer lives in it.

Property tax deduction

Homeowners can deduct the taxes paid on their property. If you worked out to include these taxes to be paid through your mortgage holder you can contact them for a copy or the County Tax Assessor’s office for a copy of your annual tax bill if you don’t have a copy on hand. It is generally mailed out to the homeowners, including the special city and local assessments each year.

Prepaid insurance premiums as tax deductions

Homeowners should also take advantage of deducting many types of prepaid insurance premiums, ie. VA, FHA,PMI and closing costs associated with the property when it was purchased. PMI can only be deducted for a residence purchased in 2007 or later, this may be the last year this deduction is allowed so be sure to claim it. PMI is a private mortgage insurance which buyers are required to take if they are putting less than 20% down on a residence. A homeowner can also deduct any prepaid property taxes for 2014 paid on the residence, your HUD provided by the escrow company would list all of these “prepaid” and “other” often tax deductible charges.

Prepaid interest and point as tax deductions

Homeowners should take a tax deduction for any prepaid interest or points. Usually this interest is fully deductible the year of purchase. However, it can also depending on the situation be fully or partially deducted for a refinance.

Prepaid interest and points for a refinance as a tax deduction

In the case of a refinance, the amount of the tax deduction and if and when it can be taken would depend on whether the refinance money was used 100% towards home improvements. If the refinance money was used for other purposes than a partial deduction spread out over the life of the loan may usually still be taken.

Tax deductions for energy efficient home improvements

Homeowners should also deduct any home improvements that make the home more “energy efficient.” Some examples of these would be installing solar panels, roof, energy efficient water heaters, windows, doors, insulation, Star rated air-conditioners and heaters and certain appliances. Also check with the electric company for possible rebates on some of these items.

Tax deductions for rental and vacation properties

Homeowners should also take advantage of the deductions offered for any rental property or vacation homes that they own. Many of the improvements and upkeep charges to these types of properties are tax deductible.
