HI, MY NAME’S LANE - I hold a law degree (J.D.), with concentration in Tax Law, Estate law & Corporate law, an MBA in finance, a BBA, and CFP & CRPS (Chartered Retirement Plans Specialist) designations, as well - I’ve been providing financial, Social Security/Medicare, estate, corporate, non-profit, and tax advice 1986.

...

The only effect will be that (if you were itemizing and deducting the interest) the tax bill will go up by the amount of the tax rate at which you are being taxed. Here are the rates for Married Filing Jointly.

...

[Tax Rate Schedule Y-1, Internal Revenue Code section 1(a)] Married Filing Jointly 2017 Tax Brackets

Taxable Income ......Tax Bracket:

$0-$18,650 ............. 10%

$18,651-$75,900 ..... 15%

$75,901-$153,100 .... 25%

$153,101-$233,350 .. 28%

$233,351-$416,700 .. 33%

$416,701-$470,700 .. 35%

$470,701+ .............. 39.6%

...

As you can see your marginal bracket is 15%, so the increase in tax without that deduction would be 6934 x .15 = 1040

...

That is, of course, an annual number. Your not making payments any longer should cover that pretty quickly
