Did you know that homeowners are eligible for tax breaks? Here are 5 tax deductions that you may qualify for as a homeowner. Talk to your tax preparer to see which applies to your situation.

Mortgage points deduction. Usually, mortgage points are paid to a lender at closing for lower interest rates. Since mortgage interest is deductible, the points you pay are also. 

Mortgage insurance deduction. If you closed on a loan after 2007, you could potentially apply for a deduction based on your PMI payments.
