My partner and I...

My partner and I purchased a mobile home in 2017 in both our names , do we have to claim it together or can only one of claim the home?

If you are asking about deducting mortgage interest and real estate taxes - either of you may claim these deduction - or you may divide deductions as you agreed.

As long as your name is ***** ***** the title - you may deduct these expenses.

As long as the same expenses are not claimed twice - you are OK.

Let me know if you need any help with reporting.
