I completed a mortgage assumption in 2016. Can I claim this on my federal tax return? I did not see a place to enter it.

I completed a mortgage assumption in 2016. Can I claim this on my federal tax return? I did not see a place to enter it.

There is no credit or deduction for an assumed loan and therefore no entry point for it in TurboTax.

You will claim your mortgage interest payments as if you were paying interest on a loan in which you originated in the following area:

  • Select Tools.

  • In the pop up window, select Topic Search.
