Mortgage Insurance is Tax Deductible

There is now another benefit of mortgage insurance – MI premiums are once again tax deductible. Mortgage Insurance tax deductibility for 2015 and 2016 was included along with other tax-related measures recently passed by Congress. This passage means homeowners can claim the MI tax deduction retroactive to January 1, 2015, allowing eligible borrowers with adjusted gross incomes of less than $109,000 to deduct the eligible amount when they file their 2015 and 2016 taxes.
