Mortgage interest and depreciation on Seller Financed property

4 Replies

Anybody have any knowledge when it comes to claiming depreciation and mortgage interest on taxes when a home is purchased through owner finance? I purchased my home from a local investor via seller finance and got to wondering how tax time was going to work. Any information would be greatly appreciated

it should work exactly the same as if you bought thru a bank 

Technically there is no difference. Except you may have to follow up with the owner to get an interest and principal statement to ensure you are on the same page.
Thanks for the info. I kinda figured it would be the same but wanted to make sure.
