RV Loan Interest Statement for Taxes

The last RV I owned was financed through a bank that specialized in RV loans, so every year they sent me an interest statement to use and to back up my interest deduction on my taxes. The dealer that I purchased my Sunset Trail from got us financed through First Merit bank. I called them and asked about an interest statement and they don't know what in the world I am talking about and stated they don't supply an interest statement for taxes.

Is anybody else's bank not providing an interest statement? If your bank is not providing one to you for your RV loan, how are you documenting/verifying interest paid in order to claim it as a deduction?

We get a statement once every 3 months our end of the year interest was on our last statement if you get statements you may check to see if you did get what you need just a thought, so they my be right in which they don't send out tax statements alone.

The last two banks we have used hasn't provided a 1098 for our interest to report on our taxes. I usually just call them up and ask them if they can tell me how much interest I paid on the loan for the year and if they can send me a copy. They usually give it to me without a problem and I have never had any issues with the IRS and not having the 1098 form.

I think just calling and asking again should be all it takes. Good luck

I am new to the need for having a 1098. We just did our taxes tonight and our accountant went off of the interest off one of our bills. I will call and get a 1098 but I was wondering why we do not get a 1098 or such for any vehicle loan? Is this because an RV is considered a home of sorts? Taxes always confuse me a bit and I appreciate any insight concerning this reasoning.

Yes, your RV can qualify as your 2nd home for tax purposes if it passes certain criteria. You can look at Publication 936, page 4.

They used to send 1098's for everything, but since the IRS no longer allows certain interest rate deductions like they used to... car loans, etc...
they don't force the finance companies to send them out...

And signing onto your account and printing it is the best way to get it...
It will either be on your last statement of the year or a separate interest paid form.

I have a loan with First Merit, you can't have an online account unless you have a checking or savings account.
I have to mail in my payments. They're 360 miles away, I was disappointed because rv finance manager said they had a local branch.
