What homeownership expenses are tax deductible?

Answer

Homeowners may deduct the interest paid on the mortgage loan, property taxes and medically necessary home renovations (like installation of wheelchair ramps or grab bars). Also, if you paid discount “points” on the loan to reduce the interest rate at the time you purchased, those payments can be deducted too.
