When entering itemized deductions on two separate tax returns, the amount of the deductions being reported cannot be greater than the total amount paid for the deduction.

For Example - If you had Mortgage Interest of $1,000 then only that total amount can be entered between the two tax returns.  You cannot enter $1,000 for Mortgage Interest on one tax return and then enter $1,000 for a Mortgage Interest on the second tax return,
