I am married. How can I file separately with the mortgage?

It can get a little tricky.  Whoever paid for it can deduct it on their Schedule A Itemized Deductions.  Unless, you live in a Community Property state, then it is reported on each tax return 50/50.  Also, when you file as Married Filing Separately, if one spouse itemizes on Schedule A, the other must also itemize on Schedule A.


Is it better for a married couple to file jointly or separately?
