Interest on the construction loan can be treated as deductible mortgage interest as long as you meet 2 conditions.
1. You complete construction within 24 months.
2. At the end of construction, the construction loan is converted into a mortgage.
If you fail to meet either condition, you would have to go back and amend your prior tax returns to remove the interest deduction.
