In accordance with Internal Revenue Service (IRS) requirements, McCue Mortgage annually reports the total amount of interest we received on your mortgage, real estate taxes we have paid on your behalf and points you paid in conjunction with the origination of your loan. This activity on your loan is reported to the IRS under the name and Social Security Number/Tax Identification Number of the primary borrower on the mortgage. Annual Statements are printed and mailed by January 30.
Please verify the Tax Identification Number on your Annual Statement matches your Social Security Number. If not, please contact us immediately.

Frequently Asked Questions and Reminders about the Annual Statement
Click on the questions below for answers to our most frequently asked questions.
We will respond as soon as possible.
Sometimes the amount of interest reported to the IRS will be different from the amount shown on the 2012 Mortgagor’s Annual Statement Information as “Interest Paid 2012”.
This may occur in the following situations:
- If you paid less than $600 in interest on your mortgage loan, we are not required to report to the IRS.
- If you assumed your mortgage in 2012, the interest reported to the IRS includes only the amount received for the period during which McCue Mortgage was aware you were obligated on the loan.
- If your monthly payments were supplemented by buy down funds, we have reported to the IRS an amount of interest paid after deduction of those supplemental amounts.
- If a portion of your monthly mortgage payment is subsidized by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) under a government-assisted loan program, you are allowed to deduct only that part, if any, of the mortgage interest payments made during the year that exceed the amount of assistance payments made by HUD.
- If on December 31, 2012, your mortgage was prepaid for installments due February 1, 2013, or after, the interest portion of such prepayments is not reportable to the IRS for the year 2012. This prepaid interest will be reported in subsequent years, as applicable.
- If you paid any late charges, we have reported to the IRS the amount paid as interest paid.
We can better serve you if you will observe the following practices:
- Please write your loan number clearly on the front of your check or money order. If you use the online banking feature provided by your depository institution, please ensure that your loan number is in the memo section of your online check authorization.
- If you are paying an amount in addition to your required monthly payment, please indicate on the coupon how you would like the additional funds applied (prepayment of future installment, principal payment, escrow payment, etc.)
- Payments may be delivered in person between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. at our One Liberty Square office in New Britain. A drop box is located in the receptionist area on the third floor. DO NOT LEAVE YOUR PAYMENT IN THE BOX OUTSIDE THE BUILDING. This is not a secured drop box and is checked only once in the morning.
- We encourage our customers to take advantage of our electronic funds transfer program to make payment automatically each month.
We also offer phone pay until 4:00 p.m. Please call us for more details at 1-877-786-5363.
The due date for your mortgage payment is the 1st of each month. Late charges are assessed if we have not received your payment in our office within 15 days of the date due. Please note we do not consider the postmark date in determining the timeliness of your payment. We request you mail your payment on or before the due date to avoid the possibility of incurring a late payment charge.
If a check is not honored by your bank and returned to us, we will charge an administrative fee of $20.00 per occurrence.
***First of the Month Club: Customers that make their payments on or before the first of the month are automatically entered into a drawing for a free mortgage payment. Learn more here.
We recommend you review your present coverage with your insurance agent to ensure that you are adequately protected in the event of damage to your property. If you choose to replace your policy, please notify us 30 days prior to the expiration date of your existing policy.
If the McCue Mortgage Company is required to maintain an escrow account for your insurance, we are responsible for payment of annual premiums. In order to ensure timely payment of our insurance premium, we must have renewal information in our office 30 days prior to the expiration date of the existing policy. Insurance claim checks require special attention.
As part of the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012, mortgage insurance deductions have been extended through 2013.

Changes in your address will be processed upon receipt of a written request signed by all borrowers which indicates the reason for the address change and the new information.
