Tax Help Available for Utah Homeowners
by Joel Carson
Dare I say the “T-word?” Taxes are never a fun subject, but Utah homeowners can take heart in a little extra tax help this season. You’ll find it at HouseLogic.com! A product of the National Association of Realtors, this website is an award-winning website for homeowners everywhere.
Look for HouseLogic’s “Homeowner’s Guide to Taxes” to determine which tax benefits will help homeowners most whether you own a Salt Lake home, Bountiful home, Park City home or a home in Timbuktu!
On this website you’ll learn all about mortgage interest deductions, energy tax credits and tax strategies that really will knock hundreds to thousands of dollars off your tax bill.
With ever-changing tax laws it’s easy for homeowners to make costly mistakes on their taxes. Be sure to read, “9 Easy Mistakes Home Owners Make on Their Taxes.” Read this section before beginning your taxes so you’ll see the red flags that crop up along the way. Some common Utah home owner mistakes include:
Have you made energy-efficient home improvements to your South Jordan home? You just might be eligible for certain tax credits.
If you were forced to succumb to the financial pressures thousands of American’s faced last year, you might have been forced into a short sale or foreclosure. Great news: You don’t have to pay income tax on the forgiven debt if the mortgage was secured by a principal residence and the total amount of the outstanding debt is not more than the original purchase price plus improvements, according to HouseLogic.com.
Farmington home owners (and all home owners nationwide) will learn:
• How to Deduct PMI
HouseLogic is a free source of information.

HouseLogic helps homeowners plan and organize their home projects and provides timely articles and news; home improvement advice and how-tos; and information about taxes, home finances, and insurance, according to the NAR.
