Is PMI on a FHA loan tax deductible in 2012?

We'll be buying a house under an FHA loan because the interest rate is smoking, but we'll have a PMI for the entire 30 years (even so, it'll cheaper than using a conventional loan). We were wondering if PMI will be tax deductible in 2012? Thanks!

    As of right now, the deduction for PMI expires with the 2011 tax year. Whether or not Congress renews the deduction for 2012 and beyond is anyone's guess.

    FHA loans don't have PMI, they have MIP. There's a difference. MIP is a single payment insurance premium that you can finance or pay at closing in cash. See the instructions for Schedule A to see how MIP is handled if Congress decides to extend it to tax year 2012 or beyond.
