It’s coming to the close of Tax Season and I’ve had many conversations with my recent 1st Time Home Buyers asking me what they should consider when it comes to tax deductions. Unfortunately, my response is pretty much the same: I would love to help you but I am not a tax expert, here is the contact information to someone who can help.


Today, my guest contributor is IRS Enrolled Agent and owner of Gibson Tax Co., LaRena Gibson. She has happily provided insight on the top 3 Tax Deductions Often Forgotten by Home Owners. More specifically 1st Time Home Owners. See what she has to say below...


Mortgage Interest deductions

The best part about buying a home is that you get to deduct the interest you pay on your Mortgage, which makes the investment worthwhile! Generally, the mortgage interest you tend to pay provides a greater tax benefit because it’s one of the items you can deduct as an itemized deduction. Overall, it’s a favorable because it reduces your adjusted gross income so that you ultimately pay less tax. 


Home offices for business owners 

 Home offices are great to have! You can deduct all cost to up keep your home and use for your business. Important things to know is that, the area of your home that you use for business must be an exclusive area. Overall, this saves you on outside the home office expense and unnecessary expenses. This is a great option that could benefit you in the long run. 


Cost of relocating

If you decide to buy and relocate more than 50 miles from your old home and place of work, you can deduct your relocation cost provided that you work full-time for a certain amount of days (9 months) following the move.
