Hello Experts,

I have a query, I have gone through previous posts but somehow felt I have not got all the answers I wanted.

Need your help here:

1) I have a mortgage in India from an Indian Bank who doesn't have a branch in the US

2) I work in the US and remit the monthly payments electronically in USD buy the lender receives the payment in local currency.

4) Is it possible to claim interest payment deduction on my itemized filing.

5) If possible what other forms do I need to file apart from the 1040.

6) What other supporting documents do I need to maintain when claiming this deduction ( I have bank statements where the payments go to the lending bank, I have payment breakup of how much principal and how much interest was paid, but in local currency.)
