Thanks to all those who posted suggestions for me. I do appreciate it greatly.After consulting just about everybody I could, including the fine readers of this message board, attorneys, accountants, friends, strangers... we are going to go with a 50/50 split. One of the attorneys consulted mentioned that for my fiance to take the deduction while I received the 1098 would require us to create a formal indemnification agreement. Also, my fiance's twin, also an attorney, found a precedent where a couple in our situation had their interest deduction split disallowed and reduced to 50%, because they had a joint checking account from which the mortgage was paid.One thing that seems universal is that for us to do anything but 50/50 would be an agressive tax strategy, that would dare the IRS to audit us. And I really don't want that at this time.Thanks again,Terry
