    What Can I Deduct When Moving for Work?

    Question: I will be accepting a full time position approximately 165 miles from my current home though my wife will continue to reside there. I plan to rent an apartment where I’ll be living permanently and I’ll have to move some of my belongings. I will probably make one trip back home each month at the most. I will also have to purchase a new computer and television set for work purposes. What portion, if any, of the monthly rental and/or moving costs in the new city would be deductible?

    What Are The Tax Rules for Retiree Home Sales?

    Question: What are the tax implications for a home sale by a retired couple, both over 65? Is there a $500,000 capital gains tax exclusion if they buy another home of equal or greater value?  Or are there new rules? What if they do not buy another home, but buy into a retirement community, apartment or condo?

    Can I Refinance My Private Mortgage?

    Question: I have kept up with my mortgage payments for a year now following a modification.  My payment has been cut by a few hundred dollars and the remaining monthly balance is added to the principal balance. Will I be able to refinance under HARP even though my mortgage is not backed by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac?

  • Nov 6, 2011
    10:50 PM ET

    Should I Do a Cash-In Refinance?

    Question: I recently looked at mortgage refinancing and found that I can save several hundred dollars per month with a fairly straightforward refi.  However, I currently have between 10-15% equity in the home and could potentially save another $100-200 per month by adding $15,000 in cash to cut the rate and trim the mortgage insurance.  Is it worth giving up this liquidity for a lower payment?

    Matt

    Should I Borrow Against My House to Buy Stocks?

    Question: I do not carry any mortgages on two homes. I am in one of the higher tax brackets and have sufficient cash to protect my current lifestyle. With home mortgage interest rates as low as they are, should I take out a 15 year mortgage (at 3.3%) or 30 year mortgage (at 4.1%) — both with $350 closing costs and fees — and then invest those funds in very conservative investments to generate income to cover or exceed those rates?

    – Mike Maier, Cincinnati, OH
