I'm trying to avoid overpaying on my taxes. Can I claim my home insurance?

Typically, home insurance is not tax-deductible. This is because most people use their home solely as their personal residence, so the Internal Revenue Service considers home insurance premiums to be nondeductible expenses.

However, there are exceptions. If, for example, you have a home office or receive rental income, your homeowners insurance may be tax-deductible.

This app is great, but the customer service is even better! Not to mention convenient! My husband and I got the lowest rate (much lower than the rates I was finding online through my own searches), quickly, and pretty much all through text message! Thank you so much for a hassle free experience👍
