  • Tuition and Fees Deduction (Form 8917/Form 1040, Schedule 1, line 21)
  • Medical expense deduction floor remains at 7.5% of AGI
  • Exclusion of gain from income of foreclosed home mortgage debt (Form 982, line 1e)
  • Ability to treated mortgage insurance premiums as qualified mortgage interest (Schedule A, line 8d)
  • Nonbusiness Energy Property Credit — Form 5695, Part II

See the 2019 IRS Publication 17 (Tax Guide for Individuals) — Impact of New Legislation section for a full list of the additional mainly business related extender provisions that are applicable through tax year 2020.
All of these provisions expire at the end of this year.
