dividing bank interest on joint account

We are an unmarried couple. The 1099-div came to person A. Both people put their paychecks into this account, but there is a difference in income. Can person B on this joint account put the entire interest income on their taxes? How do we account for this?

Match the SSN 
The IRS will match what has been reported to them by banks to what is reported on individual tax returns, via SSN. If you report taxpayer A's interest income on taxpayer B's tax return, there is a chance you could get a notice from the IRS about the mismatch. 

If you really would like to report the interest income on taxpayer B's return, I suggest you contact your bank and see if they could possibly re-issue the 1099 with taxpayer B's name and SSN on it. May or may not work, but worth a shot if that's the route you want to take.
