Question:

Is there any home equity line of credit (HELOC) tax deduction?

Answer:

Yes, a home equity line of credit HELOC comes with a tax deduction and hence it doesn't have many disadvantages going with it. It is flexible, it has lower interest than credit cards, and it is a revolving type of credit.

Even if you are using home equity line of credit (HELOC) tax deduction for debt consolidation purposes, watch out. Even if you manage to repay credit card debt, often you will not be able to repay the HELOC down itself.

Also, since using a HELOC is based on the equity in your home, HELOC payments are directly related to your home. Defaulting on HELOC payments may jeopardize your home.

Mortgage rates hit their lowest since 1955. Ask the home loan experts we recommend Quicken Loans how to take advantage of them.
