Featured Issue: Big Tax Breaks Benefit Homeowners

Homeowner Qualifications for Deductions

  • You MUST be willing to itemize deductions on your tax return.

  • Your personal income, for the 2002 tax year, didn't exceed $68,650.

  • If you file jointly with your spouse the ceiling is $137,300.

  • If you exceed the IRS' limits in either case, your deductions may be limited.

  • You purchased your home.

  • If you acquired your house as an inheritance, in a divorce settlement, as or gift, you'd be well-advised to seek professional assistance.

  • You used the home as collateral for a mortgage.

  • The home is a single-family dwelling, a townhouse, condo, mobile home, houseboat or a co-op unit.

  • Co-ops, however, have special rules, so be sure you understand the details or work with a tax a professional.
