Is hazard insurance tax deductible?

Customer Question

My 1098 from my lender listed the amounts I paid in mortgage interestproperty tax, and hazard insurance. What am I supposed to do with the hazard insurance?

If this is your residence, and you do not have rental or business use of the home, the hazard insurance is not deductible.

If this is a rental property, the hazard insurance is deductible under insurance on Schedule E under "insurance".
