Mortgage Credit Certificates Are Back!
Mortgage Credit Certificates (MCCs) offer two great benefits with your next home purchase.
- These credits allow lenders to slightly increase your income to qualify with your debt-to-income ratio.
- Mortgage Credit Certificates are an income tax credit when you file your income tax returns. This credit is equal to 20% of the annual interest paid on a mortgage.
These MCCs are now available with the VHFA MOVE program and also can be combined with a traditional mortgage.
This credit reduces your federal income tax liability by as much as 20% of the mortgage interest paid in a year and remains as a benefit as long as you keep your original mortgage and you continue to occupy the property as your primary residence.
