Is the mortgage interest that you can claim essentially the amount of mortgage payments you made that year which went towards paying off the mortgage interest?

For a rental property you can deduct the interest payments only.  You cannot deduct the principal portion of the payments.  Your financial institution should send you an annual statement breaking out the principal vs. interest of your total payment.

Happy Filing!
