so my name is not mortgage but my name is on title and i have paid the mortgage each month. i claim the deduction. this year i paid off the mortgage and lender sent a 1099-int which doesn't have my name on it. do i report this income since i claim the deduction on mortgage interest and property taxes?
It depends what the 1099-INT is for. It's unusual for the lender to pay the borrower interest. If this is related to your mortgage, such as a refund of interest you paid, then yes, you should report it, but probably as a reduction in the amount of interest that you paid.
If it's just interest paid on a different account, then no.
