Facts

  • If you take out a loan you are entitled to a deduction for your interest expenses during the months you are paying off your loan.
  • If you want your deduction throughout the year, you need to change your preliminary income assesment (as described above). 
  • Always check your tax assessment notice to see if the figures regarding your deduction are correct. 
  • If you have a floating rate loan, you need to continuously check to see if the interest rate increases or decreases and change your preliminary income assessment accordingly.
