You may enter specific information about your annual taxes and hazard insurance, or may select the box to have this calculator estimate your annual taxes and insurance. Any fields you leave blank will be assumed to be zero. In either case, the results displayed above are only estimates of the amount of income you may need to qualify for a loan in the amount you enter. Please consult your tax advisor for information on the deductibility of interest for tax purpose. Refinancing or taking out a home equity loan or line of credit may increase the total number of monthly payments and the total amount paid when comparing to your current situation.
