Update on the rules governing the deduction of taxes on mortgage credit

The use of mortgages is becoming more common and there are many reasons for this. This can include work on your home, the arrival of a baby, or a lack of income in the home. In any case, the mortgage loan is a good alternative for those who own one or more real estate. This approach consists of putting the property as collateral to be able to benefit from a loan and in particular to enjoy stable cash flow or reduce monthly charges. It offers the opportunity to benefit from better management of family capital while other loans are also being started. Generally, the mortgage loan can reach up to 65% of the estimate of the property to be mortgaged. Those with high value property will be able to aspire to higher credit.

Note, however, that since 1 January 2005, the legislature enacted a new tax reduction system on the mortgage. This is the “basket” system. On the same level as the tax declaration, the owner of the property to be mortgaged can deduct the sum of the borrowed money, the interest received, but also all the premiums relating to the mortgage loan from his taxes. However, the total amount of the deduction is capped at $ 2,120 per year per person who subscribes to the mortgage loan.
