Getting Ready for Your Tax Prep? Don't Forget Your Closing Statement!


If you bought, sold or refinanced a home in 2023, make sure pull to your Closing Statement for tax preparation. It contains all the official charges and credits of your real estate transaction. You will need this statement for filing your personal taxes. Some fees might be tax-deductible and will vary depending on primary, investment or secondary home ownership.

If you can't find your copy, don't worry! Your agent can provide with you a copy BUT they can't provide you with tax information.

Here are a few Closing Cost items that might be considered tax deductible but please consult your tax professional for more details:

  • Property Taxes

  • Prepaid Interest

  • Private Mortgage Insurance

  • Prepaid Mortgage Interest

  • Points
