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.

    First let me start off by saying no, I did not get my loan approved (yet). No-fault but my own. However, I highly recommend this company. They are knowledgeable, professional, and courteous to whatever your situation is. They stay in contact with you and clearly explain every step of the process so you never feel like you are in the dark. I would even say they go out of their way to make sure you completely understand everything and are comfortable with all the information being provided to you. Joan and Jorge, you were wonderful and after I get a few hiccups worked out, I will be back to try again. :)

    Thanks Joan for you amazing work with our home loan. I still can’t believe I purchased a house for $174,000 and went to closing with $769 besides my $1000 earnest money deposit. I submitted an application online on 10/5/2016 after I read online about VA Programs Clear Lending offered. Next day Joan Gallardo called me and after his applications dept. completed an Pre-Approval, he told me from the start not to worry that he would be able to take care of me. And boy he did! He even negotiated on behalf of my agent with listing agent getting me a large seller contribution. This guy is very knowledgeable and I truly recommend him. Joan my wife and I cannot thank you enough all hard work you have done and no need to say I will refer you my friends. Actually I already sent you my boss. Take good care of Jorge! Thanks Joan.
