There are many fees and expenses associated with owning a home.

Which things will help lower your tax bill:

The mortgage interest deduction helps many new homeowners save tons of money especially in the early years of their home loan.

Remodeling projects can often also be deducted.

Improving your home can also be a tax write-off. If you've added a room addition, installed a new roof, or made general improvements to increase the value of your home, all of these things can help to reduce your tax liability. These types of home improvements can also increase the value of your home when it comes time to sell!

Property taxes paid are deductible for as long as you own the home.
