Does anyone know if I can deduct 13 months of mortgage interest if I make 13 pyms in a year? For example, can I pay my mtg as follows

1/1/01 pym due paid 1/5/01(instead of 12/25/00)
2/1/01 pym due paid 1/31/01
3/1/01 pym through 1/01/02 pym all paid before 12/31/01. Total 13 pyms in 2001. Can I deduct 13 pym in 2002?

Thanks in advance for the help.
