How to Calculate Mortgage Interest For Tax ReturnIf you get a loan from a bank, you'll receive a Form 1098-INT, which will have mortgage interest tax information detailed for you. But if you have a private loan or just want to figure out your annual mortgage interest on your own, you can do it yourself. I have made simple Mortgage Interest Calculator for a personal use and you are very welcome to use it as well. Let me explain, how the mortgage interest calculations work. First, we need the total principal amount you owed. Let say, it is $300,000. What is your monthly mortgage payment? Monthly payment for 30-years loan is approximately $1,610. If you are partially paying toward the value of a property, this number can be higher. What is your Annual Interest Rate? Let's say it is 5%. 30 years x 12 months each year = 360. Here is the calculation for the first month: Annual Interest $300,000 x 0.05 = $15,000 Divide by the number of months in a year: $15,000/12 = $1250. You Ending Balance for the First Month: $300,000 - $1,610 + $1250 = $299,640 Now you need to use the ending balance to get your second month Interest: $299,640 x 0.05 = $149,82 $149,82 / 12 = $1248.5 $299,640 - $1610 + $1248.5 = $299,278.5 At the end of a year, just sum all interests, and you have your personally calculated mortgage interest numbers for your taxes!
