2 What is a Mortgage Credit Certificate (MCC)?
A MCC is a federal income TAX CREDIT. Based on the mortgage interest paid each year. Amount of tax credit is established by HFA and can range from 10% - 50% of the annual mortgage interest paid – not to exceed $2,000 per year. This credit reduces the federal income taxes of the buyer and has the potential of saving the MCC holder thousands of dollars over the life of the loan. TDHCA -Texas Homeownership Division

3 MCC EXAMPLE: ____________________________________________________________ Home Loan Amount: $130,000 Annual Interest Rate (30-year, fixed) % Approx. Total Mortgage Interest Paid (one year) $5,850 Mortgage Credit Certificate Rate % Annual MCC Amount (Line 3 x Line 4) $2,340 $2,000 (subject to $2,000/year max) Remaining $3,850 ($5,850 - $2,000 MCC credit) can be used as a mortgage interest tax deduction, which will reduce the homeowners taxable income therefore reducing their tax liability. A “tax deduction” is subtracted from the adjusted gross income before federal income taxes are computed. Only a percentage of the amount deducted is realized in savings.

4 How a Homebuyer Uses the MCC
The borrower claims the credit with their annual tax return using IRS Form 8396. The credit may be claimed for the life of the loan as long as the home is their principal residence. The borrowers may, if they choose, adjust their W-4s to reflect the anticipated credit. Anticipated credit may be used to help qualify the borrower for a loan. If the tax credit is $2,000, the monthly adjustment is $ per month. TDHCA -Texas Homeownership Division
