If you itemize deductions, you can deduct the amount of interest you pay with respect to mortgages on your home.

  • If you take out a second mortgage, the amount of your deduction will increase by the amount of the extra interest you pay. Points that you pay for a second mortgage are also deductible, but must be amortized over the length of the loan.
