Tax Benefits for New Homebuyers

In addition to the personal satisfaction you will get from building your New Home, remember that as a new homeowner, you’re entitled to valuable tax incentives from the federal government.

As you may be aware, you can deduct mortgage interest and property tax from your federal tax return, and often from your state return as well. With the tax changes legislated in 1997, you may be able to exclude capital gains on the sale of your home when you file your tax return. We recommend you consult your tax advisor for professional advice.
