I made my mortgage payment, that was due on 1/15/99 on 12/29/98, assuming that I will be able to take the interest deduction for that payment on my 98 Taxes. But when I received my statment from the bank, they had subtracted that interest amount from my 1998 total interest. I thought since I paid in 1998 I would be able to take the deduction in 1998? Am I wrong?

Thank you
