Without seeing the actual documents it is difficult to determine the amount you can deduct.


However, at least for the period January 1 through June 30, you should be entitled to the amount of real estate taxes and mortgage interest in a ratio based on your deposits into the joint checking account as a percentage of all deposits made to that account.
