Can I get a tax break for borrowing against my home to repay debt?

No, borrowing against your home for any purpose other than buying, building, or substantially improving is no longer deductible. That includes paying down credit card and various other debts—you will not be able to deduct those borrowed amounts.

For more information, see our Tax Breaks for Homeowners page on the Tax Guide.
