Pres. Bush Rejects Recommended Mortgage Interest Deduction Limits

Posted By Jim On 02/18/2006 @ 7:31 pm In Government,Taxes,The Home | 6 Comments

Last November, in an article titled Official Tax Reform Panel Recommendations [3], I discussed how the Presidential Tax Reform Panel made a recommendation that included two proposals that would limit the mortgage interest tax break. The first proposal reduced the mortgage-interest cap from $1M to the average regional home price and the second converted the deduction itself to a tax credit of 15% of interest paid.

In a Q&A forum yesterday, President Bush said “I don’t think you have to worry about the mortgage deduction not being a part of the income-tax law.” Whew.
