Tax Implications of Reverse Mortgages

In the last fifteen years or so, television viewers, especially those watching late at night, have been inundated with commercials for reverse mortgages. A reverse mortgage allows a mortgagor, 62 or older, to continue living and retain title in the home; while receiving back his or her equity in the form of a monthly cash payment. The original home owner continues to pay for property insurance, taxes, and maintenance. If a home owner moves, sells, or dies, he or she (or his or her estate) must repay the loan.
