Category: Finding Deductions
What if I paid for mortgage insurance but did not get a Form 1098?
If you did not receive a Form 1098 but you did in fact pay mortgage insurance, you would need to contact the mortgage insurance issuer to determine the deductible amount. Examples of mortgage insurance issuers include:
- the Department of Veterans Affairs,
- the Federal Housing Administration
- the Rural Housing Service
Mortgage insurance provided by the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Rural Housing Service is commonly known as a funding fee and guarantee fee respectively.
