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 Gallardo and his team are an exceptional group who are devoted to helping others realize their goal of home ownership. Compassionate and conscientious business people are a rare find. As first time home buyer and new to Texas I had no map of the territory. Joan was a reassuring presence through the entire experience and I will always remember and endorse his company for excellence.
