I am an Indian citizen and currently on working in USA on work visa HI. I have recently purchased a first residential property in my home country India. I have taken Home loan from a Bank in India. I am paying monthly EMIís on that loan using my NRI account.

Can I avail tax benefit on housing loan while filing tax return in US? I am not filing tax in India as I am not earning anything in my home country. Please reply.

Thanks for helping,
