For most people, the biggest tax break from owning a home comes from deducting mortgage interest. For tax year prior to 2018, you can deduct interest on up to $1 million of debt used to acquire or improve your home. You can deduct it even if the lender does not include it on the 1098.
Subsequently, question is, is there a tax credit for buying a home in 2019? To claim the Home Buyers' Tax Credit, enter the amount of $5,000 on Schedule 1 line 369 of your tax return. For 2019, the tax credit rate of 15 percent means the actual reduction of your taxes will be $750.
