Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Yes. You don't need the form. By sharing title to the home, the mortgage interest & real estate taxes that you paid are fully deductible as itemized deductions.
The bank or other holder of the mortgage can tell you the amount of interest if you don't have the figure.
I hope that your ex-husband doesn't think that just because he is in possession of the 1098 in his name & social security number that he can take the interest & real estate taxes as a deduction on his tax return?
Just checking in............
Do you have any follow-up questions?
If not, I would appreciate it if you would take a moment to response as this is the only way we receive credit for our work.
Thanks very much,
