"HELOC interest is STILL deductible"

 
 
You may have heard radio advertisements that Home Equity Lines of Credit (HELOCs) are no longer deductible after 12/31/17 as a result of the new tax law. The announcer says that you should roll up your HELOC into your current debt and refinance your new mortgage now. Hello again, Lynn Spencer here; today I want to discuss why it may not be advantageous for you to refinance as the ads suggest. Interest expense from HELOCs IS still deductible for home improvements up to $100,000 or for the funds necessary to purchase another home. The final regulations should be out this summer on the question whether you can deduct HELOC interest for the purchase of an investment property. It will be necessary from now on to track what the HELOC loan was for (even if prior to 12/31/17) so that you may continue to claim the interest deduction. In case you are not clear, HELOC interest is no longer deductible for vacations, tax payments, car loans, personal expenses and the like.
