Yes, this is because of the new tax laws.  If you at some point refinanced your home and took cash out to pay off credit cards or buy a car or something else, the interest on that portion of the balance is not deductible.  Also, if the loan was taken out after December 16, 2017, the cap for deductible interest is limited to the balance of $750,000 instead of $1,000,000.
