Two Tax-Advantaged Ways To Borrow Thousands Of Dollars At Lower Cost
Home ownership provides a solid foundation for our American way of life. This is why home equity credit interest remains largely tax-deductible, when the deductibility of interest on other forms of consumer credit, such as auto loans and charge cards, has been phased out.
American Community Bank offers two convenient ways to take advantage of the deduction (for homeowners only) and obtain $5,000... $15,000... $150,000 or more based on your home's built up equity.
Consider all the ways you could use extra thousands of dollars - money readily available without needing to cash in savings or investments.
