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.

    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

    I want to start this review saying big thanks to the Clear Lending team especially to Joan Gallardo because without him None of this would be possible..., We Choose Clear Lending initially based on positive online reviews, and couldn’t have been more satisfied with the process. While the process of home buying was much more difficult than we’d imagined, based on the levels of competitiveness, Joan gave us excellent guidance, unflagging availability, and deep knowledge about a really wide range of homes that we looked at. He helped us get into our dream home with minimal stress, thanks to him and his team we got the house that I and my family were looking for, he was more than communicative, understanding, and patient as we dragged him through dozens of open houses, Joan always kept a very communicative attitude and had the answer for each of our questions no matter what day of the week was o how late. Most important to us, Joan was always honest with us about what he thought about each property, was always available and helpful, and we always felt that he truly had our best interests at heart. In the future, if we ever decide to move, we will definitely use Joan again to both sell our home and find a new one. THANKS FOR EVERYTHING CLEAR LENDING!!!!
