Mortgage Interest Deductions

by First Time Home Buyer from Indiana, USA

Who gets the mortgage interest deductions? We just bought our first house and our parents are our private mortgage financing. We put down a 20% down payment and they loaned us the rest, around $97,000.

Is there a way to register the mortgage with the government to properly pay taxes on the mortgage and/or mortgage interest?
