working overseas - deduct US home mortgage?
I worked overseas for the year 2012 and family was with me. I still have home mortgage in the US (Washington), car payments, sales tax when we came back from vacation and health checkup, etc., etc.
Does the fact that the entire family is out of the country and we will elect the foreign tax exclusion $92,000 x 2 mean that we can... still choose 1040A itemized deductions for our payments in the US? Thank you
