Homebuyer Tax Credit
All Veteran home buyers are eligible to apply for the Florida Home Buyer Tax Credit, which will give you a dollar-for-dollar reduction of your tax liability at the end of the year. We see an average of over $100/month off our Veteran’s mortgage interest through the tax credit. This is a way to save substantially on your Florida VA Loan.
The discount is not a monthly reduction of your mortgage interest, but a tax credit that you claim each year when you file your taxes.
