Simply fill out this short form to determine if you are eligible.
Here's an example of how this tax credit can make buying a home affordable for you:
- You obtain a mortgage loan of $250,000 at 6% for 30 years with monthly principal and interest payments of $1,499 and a tax credit rate of 20%.
- In the first year, you pay a total of $14,916 of interest on your mortgage loan. Because you have utilized this program, you receive a federal income tax credit of $2,983 (20% of $14,916). This credit is deducted dollar for dollar from what you would normally have paid in income tax.
- The remaining 80% of your mortgage interest, or $11,933, remains deductible as an itemized income tax deduction.
- You also deduct your property taxes.
- To receive the immediate benefit of your tax credit, you would file a revised W-4 withholding form with your employer to reduce the amount of federal income tax withheld from your wages and increase your take home pay by $249 per month ($2,983 divided by 12).
- By applying the increase in your take home pay of $249 toward your monthly mortgage payment of $1,499, your effective monthly payment would be $1,250 ($1,499 minus $249).
You can also use the tax credit to qualify for a larger mortgage loan to purchase a higher cost home. Owning a home also allows for the deduction of local property taxes. Home buyers will be able to use the tax year throughout the duration of their mortgage. This can result in an overall tax savings of $30,000-$50,000 or more!
Mortgage types that qualify:
- VA - Veterans Administration Mortgages
- FHA - Federal Housing Authority
- Conventional - Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and others
- CHAFA - Colorado Housing Finance Authority
- Miscellaneous other programs
There are some personal income and total loan amount restrictions.
Summary of benefits to home buyers:
- Reducing your effective mortgage interest rate.
- Reducing your Federal Income Taxes by $30,000, $40,000, even $50,000 or more over the life of the loan.
- Reducing the amount of taxes withheld, thereby increasing your spendable income.
- Allowing buyers to qualify for a larger mortgage amount and higher priced home.
