Welcome to John Briscoe Homes
Newsletter Update - January 2018
Happy New Year! 2018 begin my 39th year in local real estate and I am very excited about this year. As promised I will review some of the more important tax changes for 2018 but if you want a more in depth analysis please visit my website and as usual, if you have any questions please forward them to me. I can refer you to a respected CPA. Let's get started. Some of the highlights are:
The mortgage interest deduction was reduced from a limit of one million to $750,000. It does not affect current mortgages which grandfathered in with the one million dollar limit. I don't see this as an issue regarding buyers who are going to buy regardless of the amount you can write off.
New Tax Laws simplified thanks to the California Association of Realtors.
Please Speak to a Certified Public Accountant if you have any more questions regarding the new laws.
