What Deductions are Available for Homeowners?

There are many tax perks for those who own a home and itemize their deductions.  This includes the ability to claim mortgage interest, paid real-estate taxes, points paid on closing, and medical deductions for special equipment installs (such as those for handicap individuals, hospice, etc).  We encourage every homeowner to work with a qualified tax professional, for expert advice on getting any and all deductions that you're entitled to.
