Schedule A Mortgage and Real Estate Tax Deduction

Level 1

Father and Son own a house and split the Real Estate Taxes and Mortgage 50/50. Neither has enough deductions to exceed the Standard Deduction. Is it allowable that only one of them claims the entire interest and tax deduction in order to exceed the Standard Deduction?

Each can only claim the amount they actually pay.
