Making Tax Day Easier

By National Association of Realtors, Special for  USDR

Tax Day is here again, and while that might strike fear in the hearts of some last-minute tax filers, the National Association of Realtors® is reminding homeowners that they can still count on a few significant tax advantages. Those include the mortgage interest deduction, as well as the deduction for state and local real estate  taxes.

According to NAR data, the average taxpayer saved $2,173 in 2014 by claiming the mortgage interest deduction. That same year, homeowners deducted $178 billion in state and local estate  taxes.

Happy Tax Day, homeowners!

The National Association of Realtors®, “The Voice for Real Estate,” is America’s largest trade association, representing more than 1.2 million members involved in all aspects of the residential and commercial real estate  industries.
