Generally, you can deduct interest paid on home mortgages of up to two residences. However, if you make more than $139,500, it is subject to a 3 percent reduction of itemized deductions. The home mortgage loan must be secured by the residence, however.

Interest on a home construction loan is also deductible from the time the construction began for a period up to 24 months.
