Hubby died in October of 2009, which means I will file as single this year (emphasis added). Or, as some of us would say, "for 2010."During the year, I paid for some things like real estate taxes and mortgage and the like which should be deductible. My husband was the only one on the mortgage and the house during our marriage.And after his death?This is not just nosiness. If the property and mortgage were transferred to you and the people issuing the statements just didn't update their records, yes, you can deduct the items you paid. Since you didn't get a 1098 in your SSN you report the mortgage interest on the Schedule A line for interest not reported on a 1098. You also get people to update their records.If the property didn't transfer to you, what happened to it? Maybe one of the pros knows a way of deducting items for a property not in your name if you have an interest in it.PhilRule Your Retirement Home Fool
