I purchased a home in July of 1999. Since the date of purchase I have rented a room in the home to my sister. The room is not stand-alone -- i.e., her rent gets her the bedroom and shared use of the house.While I am confident (unfortunately) that the rent she pays me and the portion of utilities she pays me is taxable income to me, and that I can deduct mortgage interest for the entire house, I'm not sure where to report it. Schedule E covers rental income, but where should I go?Also, can I deduct expenses attributable to that room and her use of the house (to the extent they are identifiable)?
