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.

    It was an absolute pleasure working with Clear Lending Home Mortgage! Joan and his team truly worked hard on helping me receive my dream home. As a first time home buyer I was unaware of the process and very unsure of what all it took to complete the process. After receiving constant let down and missed opportunities. I was on the verge of giving up until I spoke to Joan. He and his staff worked hard for me in closing on my first home in under 30 days, with an amazingly low interest rate. There was never a time I questioned Joan or his staff. I went into closing confident with no suprises.They were with me the entire process. Words cannot express how grateful I am of Clear Lending Home Mortgage. The level of professionalism and dedication to work hard for the home buyer is exceptional. I would recommend this company to anyone looking to purchase a home, they won't disappoint! Thank you Joan for everything, you made a dream come true!

    I would like to thank Mr. Joan Gallardo and his team for the information and support given in the complicated process of buying a house for the first time. I thought it would be very difficult and that things would not go as expected but it was all otherwise ... Thanks to the dedication of the staff of the Clear Lending office, everything went better than we had thought .. .. Closing with a very low interest and with input to our favor at the close of our house ... I reiterate our gratitude and I highly recommend this special team ...
