I pay mortgage insurance premiums monthly. Why isn’t that listed in Box 5 (Mortgage insurance premiums) on my Form 1098?

Frequently Asked Question

Box 5 (Mortgage insurance premiums) applies only to loans closed after December 31, 2006. Also, Box 5 may not be reported on Form 1098 if the deduction for mortgage insurance premiums paid is not extended for the current tax year. For more information about the deductibility of mortgage insurance, see the Schedule A (Form 1040) instructions at IRS.gov.
