With tax day is a little over a month away there is still plenty of time to take advantage of the various tax breaks available to you. If you purchased a home in 2013 you may be entitled to a number of tax deductions and credits this year.
If you are a homeowner, you can deduct the interest you paid on your mortgage, property taxes, points you paid to lower your interest rate, mortgage insurance premiums, and more. Other deductions include things like home office credit of $5 per square foot of the home that is used for business up to 300 sq. feet. There are even tax credits available for adding energy efficient features to your home.
Also, if you sold your home in 2013, you may qualify for a credit on the net sales (up to $250,000 for an individual and $500,000 for a couple).
