I own a home but the loan is in my son name, can I still claim the interest on the mortgage payment?

The house is in my name

Yes, if you’re a legal owner of the home and pay the entire mortgage, you can claim the full amount of mortgage interest if you itemize on Schedule A.

If the mortgage is in your sons name, you are not the legal owner. He can claim the mortgage, you cannot.

If your name is anywhere on the loan document/ mortgage you should be able to. If it isn't you cannot.
