Home equity loans. The Tax Cut and Jobs Act of 2017 was suspended from 2018 to 2025. The deduction of interest paid on a home equity loan or line of credit unless it was used to buy build or substantially improve the taxpayer’s homes that secured the loan. Under the new Act, for example, interest on a home equity line used to build is typically deductible as part of the interest on that. But if you use it to pay off personal loans, credit cards, or maybe even use it to buy a second property, it is not a tax deduction under your personal loan interest. If you need help, give me a call at 615-367-0819.
