The after-tax interest rate is the interest rate on a loan after you deduct tax expense. By calculating this rate, you can estimate the yearly tax savings on a mortgage loan.

When purchasing a home, closing costs are generally not tax-deductible. However, charges for a specific interest rate may be amortized over the term of the loan if you are refinancing. And if you are purchasing a new home, these charges may even be fully deductible.

Assuming no other changing factors, tax savings on a mortgage loan increase at higher income tax rates. This is because mortgage interest is generally tax-deductible, which would reduce the after-tax interest rate. For example, if your loan rate is 6% and your income tax rate is 25%, your after-tax interest rate is 4.5%.
