The new tax plan includes a variety of changes that make homeownership a more costly proposition for some taxpayers. In a variety of states, for instance, mortgage interest is a big tax write-off each year. On top of making modifications to the mortgage interest deduction, the bill limits the deductibility of property taxes and state and local income taxes to a combined $10,000. In states such as New York and California where home prices and property taxes are high, this change means some homeowners face bigger tax bills beginning next year.
