What Is a Tax Return?

The tax return process defines how much money you have to pay in taxes. You have to make an annual statement that includes all income and expenses. It can also include exceptions and deductions that ultimately lower your taxes.

Why is Tax Return Season the Best Time to Buy a Home?

As the name suggests, tax return season is the time of the year to fill out this paperwork. What’s more, this is one of the best times to buy a home as well. Here are some reasons why:

Allows You to Deduce Mortgage Points

Mortgage points are tax deductible. The earlier you start these payments, the more money you’ll save.

Interests and Property Tax are Also Deductible

The same logic applies to interest. Interest rates are a deductible expense. Same goes for property tax, so starting early on means saving more money.
