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.

    Joan I really appreciate all the patience you had with us. You gave us hope after we had a bad experience with our bank making sure our loan was first approved before looking for a house. This really brought our hopes up. You made sure houses we went to see met our expectations. Then no matter how late at night or early in the morning you would answer all our calls. Even when we signed the contract on the house you would still keep in touch with us and made sure everything was good. I will be referring you everyone I know and our next home purchase is going to be with you. Thank you so much Joan.

    FROM GOOGLE: AWESOME! AMAZING! EXPERIENCED! I can go on and on with adjectives to describe this guy! If you need a loan officer/realtor that you can trust, then Joan is the guy for you! I am a first time home buyer; I just got out of a complicated loan process and was very scared to go through another process of purchasing a home again until I met Joan. With Joan, buying a home was very simple and straight forward. He took his time to educate me about the loan process, and it allowed me to make informed decisions. I decided on the conventional loan, and he worked very hard to ensure that I got a loan with a meager interest rate. He kept me updated throughout and ensured that I understood everything. The entire process was super fast, and we closed the deal very early paying lower than I had expected for closing costs. I strongly recommend "Joan Gallardo of Clear lending" to anyone out there who is interested in buying a home. He saves you time, money, energy, and guides you through the process. You won't regret it!

    I wanted to buy a second home, without having to sell my primary home in Florida. I had originally contracted another mortgage broker to help me secure a loan. I spent so much valuable time with this broker only for her to tell me that I could not obtain any financing unless I sold my house in Florida. I was so frustrated with the original broker that I decided to look online for another mortgage company. I found Clear Lending. OMG talk about professionalism, knowledgeable, and the dedication Joan from Clear Lending, and his staff that in 3 months I had a new home in Texas, without selling my home in Florida. The best part of this that under the Clear Lending umbrella I was able to get my mortgage and Real Estate agent under one roof.
