Are you trying to get a loan to buy a house, apartment, boat, or RV? If you do, you will want to have your pay stubs in hand to qualify. Another aspect of the mortgage is that you will want to understand how the government can help you pay the mortgage.
When a taxpayer qualifies for mortgage assistance payments under §235 of the National Housing Act, part or all of the interest on their mortgage may be paid for the taxpayer, the interest paid for the taxpayer is not deductible. While these payments are not an income, they do not reduce other deductions, such as taxes.

For example, if you are a teacher, here are some eligibility requirements:

  • It would help if you were employed full-time or part-time as a State certified private school teacher or certified regional vocational-technical teacher.
  • You much purchase a home in a priority or transitional school district. OR You must be certified and intend to teach in an academic discipline the State has identified as a shortage area.
  • You must be a first-time homebuyer or have not owned a home in the past three years. Borrowers who have owned a home previously may also apply if they plan to purchase in a targeted area of the State. (for example, see current Targeted Areas for the State of Connecticut)
  • The home will be your primary residence for the life of the loan.
  • The sales price of the home does not exceed State sales price limits.
  • Borrower(s) gross income must not exceed State established income limits based on household size.
