2015 Instructions for Form 1098

Form 1098 is not a tricky form…. Form 1098 Mortgage Interest Statement is simply that, it’s the statement that reports the amount of interest paid, points paid on purchase of principal residence, and refund of overpaid interest (which must be a positive number).

In my experience, the trickiest part of the 1098 is where to enter in the negative interest amount, or the refunded interest amount.  This goes in Box 3 as a positive number.

If you would like some light reading for this 4th of July weekend, you can look over the instructions on Form 1098. i1098
