You may also claim the relief if you are paying mortgage interest on your own sole or main home. You can only claim the relief amount for a single person.
Widowed Person Tax Credit
If your former partner dies while you are separated, you can claim an additional tax credit for widowed persons.
This credit is not available if you and your former partner either:
