Ilyce is hosting the Clark Howard Show today on WSB Radio. Here’s some more information about the mortgage insurance tax deduction mentioned on air.

American homeowners earning $100,000 or less who pay government or private mortgage insurance premiums may continue to take tax deductions. Homeowners who earn more than $109,000 may take a partial deduction. Congress yesterday extended the deduction through 2010. The average consumer may save as much as $350 according to the Mortgage Insurance Companies of America (MICA), a trade association representing private mortgage insurers.
