Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
You can only deduct expenses for which you actually paid. If the past due interest and property taxes were added to your new loan than you haven't paid it yet. By the end of January you will receive a mortgage statement, form 1098 that will show how much of the payments you made was applied to interest and how much to property taxes.
Regarding the he health care provider, you may deduct some of the expenses as medical expenses but only expenses for nursing services (in home MEDICAL care). Expenses for grooming, cleaning (home aid expenses) are considered personal and therefore not deductible.
I see you read my respond. Do you have any questions? Is there anything else I can help you with today?
And if this answered your question, please take a moment to rate my response so that I may receive credit for assisting you today. However, if you need clarification, or want to discuss this issue further, let me know. Thank you.
