To tell you the truth, it's come up a lot. However, you report your rental income on Schedule E, and your expenses, like mortgage interest on that property, also on Schedule E. This is to one's advantage if you are in the circumstance where you would do better to take the standard deduction.

It's not an option, Schedule E is where your income and expenses for rental property must all be reported. Depreciation goes there too. This helps in the near term, but may hurt in the long term depending on how rich or poor you are when you sell.
