I'm seeking some confirmation of an assumption that is getting factored into my budgeting. Am I correct in assuming that all the same the same Federal Tax deductions apply in the USVI? Its the same 1040, Schedule A, etc but the money goes to the VI and not the Mainland?
Specifically Mortgage Interest, property taxes, points, etc. Were there any deductions for past as there are for Katrina et al? (I'm not banking on the latter but it'd be a nice to have the possibility.)
Same tax set-up. Not sure what you mean by this:
"Were there any deductions for past as there are for Katrina et al? (I'm not banking on the latter but it'd be a nice to have the possibility.) "
Do you mean did we get deductions for hurricane damage? Yes, as long as the deductions you claim for what you lost show depreciation. Ask me how I know. Nothing like losing everything & figuring FEMA loss estimates would be perfect proof of the amounts gone & getting hit with a tax audit.
