Deductions for Rental Property Here are opinions and advice from FAQ Farmers: * It depends. This is from Tax Topic 505 at IRS.gov: "Your main hom…e is where you live most of the time. It can be a house, cooperative apartment, condominium, mobile home, house trailer, or houseboat that has sleeping, cooking and toilet facilities. ... A second home can include any other residence you own, and treat as a second home. You do not have to use the home during the year. However, if you rent it to others, you must also use it as a home during the year for more than the greater of 14 days or 10 percent of the number of days you rent it, for the interest to qualify as home mortgage interest." * I don't know what the laws are like in your jurisdiction but around here a second home purchased for the purpose of renting is considered a rental property. Everything including mortgage, property taxes, and utilities etc are totally written off. Even maintentance, yard cutting, repairs are all written off too. * This is not tax advice but this is governed by the IRC. If the primary purpose is rental then interest and other ordinary and necessary expenses are all deductible.
No. Personal expenses would not be deductible on your income tax return.
Building a QUALITY custom roof over a deck or patio should, in most cases, be a job for a professional contractor. Building permits, city and neighborhood code restrictions, d…ealing with subcontractors, liability insurance, and other factors can complicate matters for most homeowners. In most cases, you can assume a relative cost per square foot of $55-$70, based on the individual intricacies and elaborations for your roof (materials, pitch of roof, etc..). In other words, a responsible contractor should be able to build a quality 15' x 15' CUSTOM patio or deck roof (225 square feet) for right at $13.500.00.
no....its a fixed cost
You can include in medical expenses costs for prescribed medicines and drugs. You can deduct medical expenses only if you itemize deductions on IRS Form 1040 Schedule A and on…ly to the extent they exceed 7.5% of your adjusted gross income. Most people do not have enough medical expenses to exceed the 7.5% threshhold so do not get a medical expense deduction. See the attached links for more information.
Depreciation is a benefit you must take or lose! You must take the "depreciation allowed or allowable....". Hence don't use it and you pay for it anyway! It is one of the bi…ggest tax benefits of owing rental property, albeit you will need to appreciate there is a final adjustment where the amount you expense now (depreciate), reduces the basis and therefore increases the tax gain on sale...and the amount depreciated and expensed now (as high rate ordinary income) needs to be replaced and taxed at that same rate then. (I know, Whew!) It is done for both financial and tax reporting. Tax process and allowances are actually more generous than financial. However, while not truly complex...it takes some understanding. Depreciation is an income tax deduction that allows a taxpayer to recover the cost or other basis of certain property. It is an annual allowance for the wear and tear, deterioration, or obsolescence of the property. Most types of tangible property (except, land), such as buildings, machinery, vehicles, furniture, and equipment are depreciable. Likewise, certain intangible property, such as patents, copyrights, and computer software is depreciable. In order for a taxpayer to be allowed a depreciation deduction for a property, the property must meet all the following requirements:The taxpayer must own the property. Taxpayers may also depreciate any capital improvements for property the taxpayer leases.A taxpayer must use the property in business or in an income-producing activity. If a taxpayer uses a property for business and for personal purposes, the taxpayer can only deduct depreciation based only on the business use of that property.The property must have a determinable useful life of more than one year. Even if a taxpayer meets the preceding requirements for a property, a taxpayer cannot depreciate the following property:Property placed in service and disposed of in same year.Equipment used to build capital improvements. A taxpayer must add otherwise allowable depreciation on the equipment during the period of construction to the basis of the improvements.Certain term interests. Depreciation begins when a taxpayer places property in service for use in a trade or business or for the production of income. The property ceases to be depreciable when the taxpayer has fully recovered the property's cost or other basis or when the taxpayer retires it from service, whichever happens first. A taxpayer must identify several items to ensure the proper depreciation of a property, including:The depreciation method for the propertyThe class life of the assetWhether the property is "Listed Property"Whether the taxpayer elects to expense any portion of the assetWhether the taxpayer qualifies for any "bonus" first year depreciationThe depreciable basis of the property The Modified Accelerated Cost Recovery System (MACRS) is the proper depreciation method for most property. Additional information about MACRS, and the other components of depreciation are in Publication 946, How to Depreciate Property. A taxpayer must use Form 4562, Depreciation and Amortization, to report depreciation on a tax return. Form 4562 is divided into six sections and the Instructions for Form 4562 contain information on how, and when to fill out each section.

Possibly. It depends on your basis, how much depreciation you have claimed, whether the loan is recourse or non-recourse, and whether the bank is canceling the unrecovered b…alance of the loan. A foreclosure is treated as if you sold the property to the bank. On a recourse note, it is treated as if you sold the property for the fair market value at the time of foreclosure. On a non-recourse note, it is treated as if you sold it for the balance of the loan. (I am assuming the loan balance is more than the value of the property, otherwise you would have just sold the property and paid off the loan, right?) On a recourse note, if the bank decides not to pursue a deficiency judgment against you, then the cancelled debt (the difference between the FMV and the balance due) is taxable ordinary income (unless you meet the insolvency or bankruptcy exceptions). You'll also need to recapture depreciation, just like on an ordinary sale. Unlike a homeowner whose personal home is foreclosed upon, you will be able to claim a capital loss.
