we bought a house last year and both want to itemize our deductions to take advantage of the mortgage interest, points, and real estate taxes we paid. my question has to do with how we divide these up between our two separate tax returns.the first time homebuyer IRS publication actually mentions our case regarding the interest and points. It instructs that we each attach a note to our returns stating that each of us paid half of these costs and listing the name of the person who paid the other half. but (typical of IRS publications) it did not cover the same issue with the real estate taxes. can we divide these in a similar manner?thanks in advance, FullOnFool
