My wife and I own our home, we are filing separatly, do we both put information about owning our home?

Can she be the one who puts in that information since she pays for the mortgage?

Please take a look at the following information from the IRS regarding splitting itemized deductions when using the Married Filing Separate filing status:  https://www.irs.gov/help-resources/tools-faqs/faqs-for-individuals/frequently-asked-tax-questions-an...
