There is now another MI benefit – mortgage insurance premiums are once again tax deductible.

Mortgage Insurance tax deductibility for 2014 was included along with other tax-related measures passed by Congress in December 2014 as part of the “Tax Increase Prevention Act of 2014.” This passage means homeowners can claim the MI Tax Deduction retroactive to January 1, 2014, allowing eligible borrowers with adjusted gross income of less than $109,000 to deduct the eligible amount of their 2014 mortgage insurance premiums when they file their 2014 taxes.
