Don't count on it or the previous answers. Real estate agents are not qualified to give tax advice. I'd recommend you speak with a tax professional. Everything is "deductible" until you learn otherwise in an audit.

Absolutely. Interest on mortgages (first & second) as well as property taxes are tax deductable.

Good afternoon William:

Interest and property taxes are deductable on a second home. Another home that is an investment home has another whole set of tax and operational issues.

YES, and you can depreciate it if it is a rental. You need to have fire insurance.
