Does mortgage interest have to be split in a divorce when filing taxes.?
My ex and I split last year, in July. Together we owned a house. When we split, I kept the house. I refinanced in October. During our ownership we were both on the loan, however, I am the primary account holder for that loan, and the mortgage interest was reported only under my name. Is it mandatory that I split the mortgage interest deduction with my ex? Part of the divorce settlement was that my ex had no further interest in the residence.
