Tax Tip

With the April 15th tax deadline closing in, we remind all who have a secured loan on their boat that they still qualify for a tax deduction for the interest paid on the loan. For tax purposes many boats meet the criteria as a second home, just as land-based condos or mobile homes do.
The IRS defines a second home as having basic living accommodations: sleeping quarters (bunks), toilet (head) and cooking facilities (galley). Many of today’s boats meet this requirement. Check with your tax preparer to see if you qualify for this deduction.
