My wife and I jointly owned our house with a mortgage balance of $40k. When we divorced, I refinanced my mortgage with a new balance of $225k because I had to pay my ex-wife $160k for her share of the house's value (rather than the equity). How much of the interest on my $225k mortgage can I claim as a deduction?
