Tax Witholdings

I've got a mortgage and withholding question.


I'm about to buy my first house; I know that paying mortgage interest will allow me to change mine and my wife's tax withholding, but I'm uncertain about some of the nitty-gritty there. Specifically, how can I calculate what our NEW TAKE HOME INCOME will be after our withholding is changed to take advantage of the new tax situation?

Specifics: Combined income = $124,000
Cost of home = $600,000
Mortgage interest = $22,000 (per year)

Thank You

(I assume this is one of those questions that's butt-simple, but totally impenetrable if you're ignorant like me. I've spent quite a while googling, but get nothing but withholding calculators, which only seem to give me part of the picture

Specifics: Combined income = $124,000
Cost of home = $600,000
Mortgage interest = $22,000 (per year=====>. When deciding whether to itemize, you need to remember that you will be giving up the standard deduction. Therefore, after adding up your itemized deductions, you need to make sure the total is greater than the standard deduction for your filing status. If it?s not, then you will actually pay more in tax if you itemize.you can Once you have entered your expenses on the appropriate lines of Schedule A, add them up and copy the total to the second page of your Form 1040. This amount is then subtracted from your income to arrive at the final taxable income number.
