If you are a single, hard working, self- employed, childless person, your mortgage interest deduction is the largest deduction you have!!
Every year, NAR does their annual Home Buyers and Sellers Report. Last year, NAR reported the following demographics for home buyers:
Median Age: 39
Median Household income: $73,100
21% of buyers were single females, and 10% were single males
Here's the biggie: 63% of home buyers reported no children were living in the home!! (Therefore, no child tax credits)
63% of taxpayers this year will need the mortgage interest deduction! I believe many tax payers do not realize how the mortgage interest deduction is saving them money. For me, it was the difference between owing about $3600 extra every year, and getting a refund of $1200! I don't know about you, but I can always use an extra $4800!
