So here’s the question. If you have a second home, is it tax deductible? And the answer could be yes. If it’s not a rental, we can write it off, but it has to be true mortgage interest. It cannot be a line of credit. So that’s where we have to make sure that you’re doing your lines or loans a lot different than we used to worry about. So if you have a first or you have a second, and in theory people, motor homes can be considered second homes on IRS tax forms. So if you have questions about how or what you’re doing on your taxes, you might want to give us a call at 615-367-0819.
