#Good news! The IRS has extended the tax deadline to April 18th! As long as you submit your federal return by midnight on 4/18/2018, you won't be considered a late filer for your federal return. Direct debit tax payments that are submitted with your federal return (or on the IRS website) by 4/18 are also considered timely filed ×

Can I claim the Mortgage Interest Deduction if I don’t have Form 1098?

This page has been updated for 2018 taxes and may not apply to previous years.

 

If you meet the eligibility requirements to deduct mortgage interest, you don’t need Form 1098 to take the deduction when filing your return through Credit Karma Tax. Lenders send Form 1098 to anyone who paid at least $600 in mortgage interest. A copy is also submitted to the IRS.

Go to this section in Credit Karma Tax: Mortgage Interest Paid

If you don’t receive one, you can still take the deduction by getting the information from a different source, including your lender or your end-of-year mortgage statement.

This is different from the Mortgage Interest Credit, which requires you to have a Mortgage Credit Certificate (MCC).
