My ex-wife has been paying the mortgage on our AZ home for about 14 months. The mortgager is in my name only, but she is listed on the deed. We were supposed to sell the home and divide the gain, but the divorce decree did not state any deadline on when
this needed to be done. I have been living in Las Vegas for 16 months. She now claims that she should receive the tax and interest as a deduction on her 2012 income tax. Question #1 Is she entitled to this? Question 2 Should I be receiving any rent money,
since she lives in the house and I don't? She is doing a refi, and I am supposed to receive $5,000 in exchange for my agree ment to let her do this. The home appraises at $165,000. The balance on the mortgage is about $125,000. I would receive a lot mor than
$5,000 if the home was sold on the open market. The home may close this week, but I have yet to sign any documents. What are my options and responsibilities concerning these issues?
