USA mortgage interest and ta

Subject: mortgage interest and tax


I’m a cdn citizen working on a TN visa in Virginia. I’m thinking of purchasing a home here, and I’m not clear if the mortgage interest and tax are tax deductible. The home will be my primary residence, will be used for nothing else.

Best regards,

Your Mortgage interest and property taxes are dedcutible on schedule A of your US 1040 return. If you had kept a cottage at Collingwood or Whistler of the Gaspe or Lake Winnipeg or anywhere else in Canada, France, Australia, etc., the taxes and interest on your second vacation home would also be deductible even if the property was not in the USA.
