Another time to flog Dobbin. Am I correct in assuming you closed, but did not move in on account of you allowed the sellers to stay while their home was being completed?

If so, your rental income is declared on Schedule E, and not only your mortgage interest but also the pro-rated taxes are deductible on Schedule E. Plus repairs you might have made, that sort of thing.
