Yes; through tax year 2021, private mortgage insurance (PMI) premiums are deductible as part of the mortgage interest deduction.
The tax deduction for PMI was set to expire in the 2020 tax year, but recently, legislation passed The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 effectively extending your ability to claim PMI tax deductions for the 2021 tax period. In short, yes, PMI tax is deductible for 2021.
Will I be able to deduct mortgage insurance premiums in 2022? The deduction has not yet been extended to the 2022 tax year, but historically it has been extended every year since its initial adoption.
Is PMI deductible? The legislation, signed into law Dec. 20, 2019, not only makes the deduction available again for eligible homeowners for the 2020 and future tax years, but also enables taxpayers to take it retroactively for the 2018 and 2019 tax years by filing amended returns.
Is health insurance tax-deductible? Health insurance premiums are deductible on federal taxes, in some cases, as these monthly payments are classified as medical expenses. Generally, if you pay for medical insurance on your own, you can deduct the amount from your taxes.
In the past, there's been a deduction for mortgage insurance premiums, but the law that would allow this deduction this year is still under review. That is probably why your lender did not report it on your 1098. If you do not know the amount of mortgage insurance you paid in 2018, contact your lender.

If your adjusted gross income (AGI) is over $100,000, then the PMI deduction begins to phase out. Between $100,000 and $109,000 in AGI, the amount of PMI you can claim is reduced by 10% for each $1,000 in increased income. Once you hit $109,000 in AGI, you are no longer eligible to claim a PMI tax deduction.
Mortgage Interest Deduction
All interest you pay on your home's mortgage is fully deductible on your tax return. (The exception is for loans above $1 million; the deduction on these is capped.) In other words, $4,000 in annual mortgage interest reduces your taxable income by that $4,000 amount.
There is an income threshold where once breached, every $100 over minimizes your mortgage interest deduction. That level is roughly $200,000 per individual and $400,000 per couple for 2021.
If the loan is not a secured debt on your home, it is considered a personal loan, and the interest you pay usually isn't deductible. Your home mortgage must be secured by your main home or a second home. You can't deduct interest on a mortgage for a third home, a fourth home, etc.
You are not required to attach IRS Form 1098-T to your tax return. The IRS Form 1098-T is not like the IRS Form W-2 obtained from your employer, which is required to be attached to the tax return filed with the IRS.

The 1098 form and its variants are used to report certain contributions and other possible tax-deductible expenses to the IRS and taxpayers. In particular, they cover mortgage interest payments; contributions of motor vehicles, boats, or airplanes; student loan interest paid; and tuition and scholarship information.
A mortgage used to purchase your main residence is not a business loan, and consequently, no mortgage interest tax relief is available, but a loan taken out to fund a property letting business is a business loan and the mortgage interest is an allowable expense that can be set against rental income.
Homeowners who itemize their tax returns can deduct property taxes they pay on their main residence and any other real estate they own. This includes property taxes you pay starting from the date you purchase the property.
Itemized deductions include amounts you paid for state and local income or sales taxes, real estate taxes, personal property taxes, mortgage interest, and disaster losses. You may also include gifts to charity and part of the amount you paid for medical and dental expenses.
Since April 2020, you've no longer been able to deduct any of your mortgage expenses from your rental income to reduce your tax bill. Instead, you now receive a tax-credit, based on 20% of your mortgage interest payments.
