Itemized & Standard Deductions

Question:

Recently, I did a home equity loan & used the loan proceeds to consolidate personal debts. Is this interest deductible?

Answer:

A home equity loan or second mortgage are deductible in most cases for reasons like buying, building and making notable home improvements. If you paid off personal debts, it will most likely qualify as home equity debt. The amount you can deduct as interest on home equity debt may be subject to certain limitations.
