Question:

Is interest on home equity line of credit (HELOC) tax deductible?

Answer:

Often, home equity line of credit (HELOC) will have tax deductible interest. Even more, interest paid on a HELOC may be completely tax-deductible.

Contact a tax advisor to figure out how much exactly you save with a HELOC, as you should know that tax deductibility of a HELOC depends on the tax bracket, the HELOC amount, the value of your house(s), and other factors.

Tax deductibility is not the only bonus that comes with a HELOC. Rather, customers may rely on a HELOC for unexpected expenses, especially if their first mortgage is fully paid off. Also, a home equity line of credit (HELOC) only gets you interest on what you decide to spend.

A tax deductible home equity line of credit (HELOC) is often used in debt consolidation programs to reduce monthly payments and help eliminate credit card debt for troubled borrowers.

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