    Just be prepared to show this is your principal or secondary residence and that you keep proof that you paid the interest..

    Note, unless you are using a PO Box, I think any auditor would be skeptical.  Especially if you are not claiming the correct filing status.

    No, you just need to be the owner of the property and it be your principal residence.

    No.

    There are various reasons why the address on the tax return would not match the address on the 1098.

    Just answer the question as posed.

    The IRS manual explains each line.
