I need to fill out form 8396. Im confused as to what number I put in line 1.

I have a MCC certificate that shows a 40% credit rate. where would I find the amount to file on line one of form 8396. is it on the MCC certificate or a 1098 form ?

Once the MCC (Mortgage Credit Certificate) and Mortgage Interest is entered into TurboTax at the full amounts the program will reduce the deductible mortgage interest by the amount of the non-refundable MCC.

The adjustments are automatic.  It does not appear to matter which order you put them in.  Either the Mortgage interest first or the MCC first as long as they are both entered.

Your mortgage interest amount would be reported on form 1098. If you did not receive a 1098, contact your mortgage lender for the amount of interest paid or look to your mortgage statement.

To navigate to the section for qualified mortgage credit certificate holders:

  1. Sign into your TurboTax Deluxe (online) account
