"Homeowners who make their January 2002 mortgage payment this month will get to deduct the interest paid a full year earlier."

Are you sure about this? I was just reading IRS pub 936 and it sounds like you can only deduct interest for the period of the current year (even if you prepay). I hope you're right though, b/c I paid my Jan payment early.
