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.

    Working with Joan at clear Lending has been the best experience of my life. I have been turned down several times because of my credit score. No one ever took the time to explain to me what exactly I needed to do so I lost all hope, just when I was about to give up and continue to pay extremely high rent I found Clear Lending and I would be forever thankful I did. They are very upfront with you through your whole process, not only that they help you. Everyone I have spoken with has been extremely nice and professional and was able to work with my credit score to give me my dream home. Joan said we will find a home before my lease was up in March and we did I closed on March 26,21 and it was a smooth process. Joan is very hands-on with you through the whole process and works EXTREMELY! hard to make sure you are happy, any time I had a question he answers right away. It never left a message and I will have him call you back kind of place. Any time I had a question no matter how late or early it was he responded quickly. If I could give the me 100 stars I would, if I can give them a review every day I would. I never thought this day would ever happen after being turned down by other companies and it did thanks to Clear Lending. Not only that my closing cost was less than I expected it to be. Joan said he would give me the best rate he could and he did just that. Thank you, Joan. I and my kids will be forever thankful for you and your team, for everything you guys did for us to get us in our home with kindness and patience.

    Estimado Sr. Gallardo buenos días,

    Hay pocas cosas que se comparen con el comprar una casa. Para mi y mi familia esto es un sueño y ustedes fueron una parte esencial de esto, en verdad no encuentro palabras para agradecerles su apoyo, profesionalismo y su paciencia. Creo que una de las mejores formas de decir gracias es con referencias y creanme que dudo que haya un servicio comparable al que ustedes brindan, por lo que los recomendaré a cuanta persona encuentre buscando una casa.

    De corazón, muchas gracias a todos...

    Lo mejor para ustedes y sus familias en este 2015.

    Un abrazo

    It was great to have Clear Lending support to achieve my objectives. My Family and I contacted Clear Lending from Indonesia for primary home mortgage. All the process was completed remotely by email and Whatsapp. Upon getting the credit approval, we chose our new home and closed the purchase successfully and timely. My Family and I are very lucky to count on you and we wish to thank you for a fantastic services and for your guidance and advise.
