Too many deductions on your income taxes?

 

Have you ever been denied a mortgage loan due to tax write-offs?

As we get ready for tax season, we put together our W-2s or 1099s, maybe some medical expenses, our children education expenses and all receipts we’ve been collecting throughout the year so our CPA or Tax Preparer can claim them in the form of deductions to either get the fattest check back or simply pay the least possible taxes to Uncle Sam.

For the most part, any expenses claimed on tax returns may help save on taxes due, but did you know it can also reduce or even kill your borrowing ability?

In simple terms, the use of deductions reduces your qualifying income by the same amount of deductions reported. So for instance, a wage earner who reports $60,000 on his/her W-2 and who also reports unreimbursed employee expenses of $20,000 for that same year, his/her qualifying income will be reduced to $40,000. This will definetely affect person's borrowing ability. 

While for self-employed borrowers the criterion is the same, there are more options as certain deductions not available to wage earners may not reduce qualifying income while do reduce taxes due.

This is why as we get into tax season whether you are a wage earner or self-employed be sure to contact us to share your coming plans as well as talk with your CPA or Tax Preparer ahead of time to let them know you are looking to get a mortgage loan. This way, you can strategically prepare your taxes, preserving your borrowing potential and still maybe saving on taxes as well.

    July 28th.... A very important day for someone at age 44. A huge change that was much needed but none the less, very difficult. After living in my previous home for 15 years and being with someone for 25 years, I found myself back at my Mom’s house and starting over. After wallowing in my sadness for a while, I decided to start looking for a new home for my young adult children, dogs and myself. Thankfully, a cousin had given me a number to a realtor that led me to Joan with Clear Lending. With all the difficult changes I also was in for a fight when it came to applying for a mortgage. Being naive to the process, Joan was very patient and helpful. Even when I felt hopeless, he reminded me constantly it would be okay and it was part of the process, I'm not sure but I think maybe a part of him was starting to see the difficulty I was facing. But one night, I received the best phone call in the world!! I was clear to move forward and close on my home. I thank God every day for putting the right people in my path to help in my new chapter of life. Thank you Joan and Clear Lending for working so hard on my approval for my mortgage.

     

    God Bless
