You may be able to deduct that prepaid interest on your federal tax return — but only if you meet a long list of rules.   If you determine that your purchase mortgage points are deductible, you'll report them on Schedule A of Form 1040. Image: Liz Foreman for HouseLogic The points you paid when you signed a mortgage to buy your home may help cut your federal tax bill. With points, sometimes called loan origination points or discount points, you make an upfront payment to get a particular rate from the lender. Since mortgage interest is deductible, your points may be, too. If you itemize your deductions on Schedule A of IRS Form 1040, you may be able to deduct all your points in the year you pay them.Some high...

Let the truth be known. The real question is not if the Interest rates are going up, but the real question is when will the Interest rates go up? It is inevitable if the rates will go up. The economy is good and all the economic indicators are pointing to them going up. Soon Mr Inflation will be showing his face. At a real estate summit I went to today it was determined that the market is back to about 91% of where it was in 2006. The general consensus was if oil prices stay low for awhile the Feds are less likely to increase the rate too soon. It will go up. It is just a matter of time. May I suggest if you are thinking of selling that home in Waukesha County Real estate market that you give me a call or at least click the link below for an online home market. You can always search hom...
