1098

We refinance our home in 2020, the 1098 received did not show points paid, but the paperwork on closing costs show an origination/administration fee.  Is this the same as points and deductible?

No, points are not the same as origination points. Origination points are not deductible on non-rental property.

 

In real estate, a point is an amount equal to 1% of the mortgage. A point on a $120,000 mortgage is worth $1,200, 2 points are worth $2,400 and so on.

  • Origination points are charged by lenders to cover loan processing costs. Sometimes they'll also include fees for appraisals, inspections, title, attorneys, notaries, and real estate taxes.
