Can you write off MIP?
Accordingly, can you deduct MIP on 2018 taxes?
According to Turbo Tax, the mortgage insurance deduction is not available for the 2018 tax year. Even if the PMI deduction is extended, keep in mind that the standard deduction has been raised to as much as $24,000 for a married couple. If you take that itemized deduction, you can't write off PMI.
Likewise, was the mortgage insurance premium deduction extended? The Tax Relief and Health Care Act first introduced the mortgage insurance deduction back in 2006. Congress extended the deduction in 2015 when it passed the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes (PATH) Act, but the deduction expired on December 31, 2016. The extension was good for only one year.
In this regard, is upfront MIP tax deductible?
The upfront mortgage insurance premium, or UFMIP, that you paid to the FHA upon closing on a home purchase may be deducted if it meets certain requirements. You can deduct the UFMIP if you opted for the latter method – the out-of-pocket lump sum payment at closing.
Is Home Mortgage insurance deductible in 2018?
In the new tax bill for 2018, mortgage interest will still be fully deductible in many cases (subject to new restrictions and limits that we'll get into below). This means that mortgage insurance payments are no longer deductible, beginning with your 2017 return.
