I have a Home Equity Line of Credit secured by my primary home / mortgage in MD. I used $6000 of it to pay for repairs and improvements on a rental property I own in OH. The rental property is rented to a tenant. Am I allowed to deduct the interest on the money I borrowed?
No, you can only deduct the interest that was used to buy, build or substantially improve the home the mortgage is secured by.
