Does it matter when I mail in my January mortgage payment for tax purposes? It is not due until January 5th but I am curious if I post it before December 31 (and it is paid) if the interest in that payment will be deductible in 2000 or if will automatically be included in 2001 as it is considered to be January's payment?
