In the past interest on home equity debt was tax deductible, but it no longer is unless it is obtained to build or substantially improve the homeowner's dwelling. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 changed what home debt interest payments could be deductible against income. As of 2018 homeowners can deduct interest paid on first mortgages, up to a limit of the interest payments on the first $750,000 of debt. If the interest deduction is important to your finances then a cash out refi on your original mortgage may still qualify. Please note that debt which is not considered origination debt typically is not tax deductible.
