I currently co-own a home with my girlfriend (we are both on the title & mortgage). We split the mortgage roughly 60/40, with her giving me a check each month, and one payment being sent in to the mortgage company.

Does anyone know how the property tax & mortgage interest deductions would be handled in a situation like this? I have done some research but have thus far not turned up anything. Logic would suggest that we could then split the deductions 60/40, but I have seen nothing to support that.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
