Army taxes Rental income is any payment you receive for the use or occupation of property. Army taxes In addition to amounts you receive as normal rent payments, there are other amounts that may be rental income. Army taxes When to report. Army taxes   If you are a cash-basis taxpayer, you report rental income on your return for the year you actually or constructively receive it. Army taxes You are a cash-basis taxpayer if you report income in the year you receive it, regardless of when it was earned. Army taxes You constructively receive income when it is made available to you, for example, by being credited to your bank account. Army taxes   For more information about when you constructively receive income, see Accounting Methods in chapter 1. Army taxes Advance rent. Army taxes   Advance rent is any amount you receive before the period that it covers. Army taxes Include advance rent in your rental income in the year you receive it regardless of the period covered or the method of accounting you use. Army taxes Example. Army taxes You sign a 10-year lease to rent your property. Army taxes In the first year, you receive $5,000 for the first year's rent and $5,000 as rent for the last year of the lease. Army taxes You must include $10,000 in your income in the first year. Army taxes Canceling a lease. Army taxes   If your tenant pays you to cancel a lease, the amount you receive is rent. Army taxes Include the payment in your income in the year you receive it regardless of your method of accounting. Army taxes Expenses paid by tenant. Army taxes   If your tenant pays any of your expenses, the payments are rental income. Army taxes Because you must include this amount in income, you can deduct the expenses if they are deductible rental expenses. Army taxes See Rental Expenses , later, for more information. Army taxes Property or services. Army taxes   If you receive property or services, instead of money, as rent, include the fair market value of the property or services in your rental income. Army taxes   If the services are provided at an agreed upon or specified price, that price is the fair market value unless there is evidence to the contrary. Army taxes Security deposits. Army taxes   Do not include a security deposit in your income when you receive it if you plan to return it to your tenant at the end of the lease. Army taxes But if you keep part or all of the security deposit during any year because your tenant does not live up to the terms of the lease, include the amount you keep in your income in that year. Army taxes   If an amount called a security deposit is to be used as a final payment of rent, it is advance rent. Army taxes Include it in your income when you receive it. Army taxes Part interest. Army taxes   If you own a part interest in rental property, you must report your part of the rental income from the property. Army taxes Rental of property also used as your home. Army taxes   If you rent property that you also use as your home and you rent it less than 15 days during the tax year, do not include the rent you receive in your income and do not deduct rental expenses. Army taxes However, you can deduct on Schedule A (Form 1040) the interest, taxes, and casualty and theft losses that are allowed for nonrental property. Army taxes See Personal Use of Dwelling Unit (Including Vacation Home) , later. Army taxes Rental Expenses This part discusses expenses of renting property that you ordinarily can deduct from your rental income. Army taxes It includes information on the expenses you can deduct if you rent part of your property, or if you change your property to rental use. Army taxes Depreciation , which you can also deduct from your rental income, is discussed later. Army taxes Personal use of rental property. Army taxes   If you sometimes use your rental property for personal purposes, you must divide your expenses between rental and personal use. Army taxes Also, your rental expense deductions may be limited. Army taxes See Personal Use of Dwelling Unit (Including Vacation Home) , later. Army taxes Part interest. Army taxes   If you own a part interest in rental property, you can deduct expenses that you paid according to your percentage of ownership. Army taxes When to deduct. Army taxes   If you are a cash-basis taxpayer, you generally deduct your rental expenses in the year you pay them. Army taxes Depreciation. Army taxes   You can begin to depreciate rental property when it is ready and available for rent. Army taxes See Placed-in-Service under When Does Depreciation Begin and End in chapter 2 of Publication 527. Army taxes Pre-rental expenses. Army taxes   You can deduct your ordinary and necessary expenses for managing, conserving, or maintaining rental property from the time you make it available for rent. Army taxes Uncollected rent. Army taxes   If you are a cash-basis taxpayer, do not deduct uncollected rent. Army taxes Because you have not included it in your income, it is not deductible. Army taxes Vacant rental property. Army taxes   If you hold property for rental purposes, you may be able to deduct your ordinary and necessary expenses (including depreciation) for managing, conserving, or maintaining the property while the property is vacant. Army taxes However, you cannot deduct any loss of rental income for the period the property is vacant. Army taxes Vacant while listed for sale. Army taxes   If you sell property you held for rental purposes, you can deduct the ordinary and necessary expenses for managing, conserving, or maintaining the property until it is sold. Army taxes If the property is not held out and available for rent while listed for sale, the expenses are not deductible rental expenses. Army taxes Repairs and Improvements Generally, an expense for repairing or maintaining your rental property may be deducted if you are not required to capitalize the expense. Army taxes Improvements. Army taxes   You must capitalize any expense you pay to improve your rental property. Army taxes An expense is for an improvement if it results in a betterment to your property, restores your property, or adapts your property to a new or different use. Army taxes Betterments. Army taxes   Expenses that may result in a betterment to your property include expenses for fixing a pre-existing defect or condition, enlarging or expanding your property, or increasing the capacity, strength, or quality of your property. Army taxes Restoration. Army taxes   Expenses that may be for restoration include expenses for replacing a substantial structural part of your property, repairing damage to your property after you properly adjusted the basis of your property as a result of a casualty loss, or rebuilding your property to a like-new condition. Army taxes Adaptation. Army taxes   Expenses that may be for adaptation include expenses for altering your property to a use that is not consistent with the intended ordinary use of your property when you began renting the property. Army taxes Separate the costs of repairs and improvements, and keep accurate records. Army taxes You will need to know the cost of improvements when you sell or depreciate your property. Army taxes The expenses you capitalize for improving your property can generally be depreciated as if the improvement were separate property. Army taxes Other Expenses Other expenses you can deduct from your rental income include advertising, cleaning and maintenance, utilities, fire and liability insurance, taxes, interest, commissions for the collection of rent, ordinary and necessary travel and transportation, and other expenses, discussed next. Army taxes Insurance premiums paid in advance. Army taxes   If you pay an insurance premium for more than one year in advance, for each year of coverage you can deduct the part of the premium payment that will apply to that year. Army taxes You cannot deduct the total premium in the year you pay it. Army taxes Legal and other professional fees. Army taxes   You can deduct, as a rental expense, legal and other professional expenses, such as tax return preparation fees you paid to prepare Schedule E (Form 1040), Part I. Army taxes For example, on your 2013 Schedule E, you can deduct fees paid in 2013 to prepare your 2012 Schedule E, Part I. Army taxes You can also deduct, as a rental expense, any expense (other than federal taxes and penalties) you paid to resolve a tax underpayment related to your rental activities. Army taxes Local benefit taxes. Army taxes   In most cases, you cannot deduct charges for local benefits that increase the value of your property, such as charges for putting in streets, sidewalks, or water and sewer systems. Army taxes These charges are nondepreciable capital expenditures, and must be added to the basis of your property. Army taxes However, you can deduct local benefit taxes that are for maintaining, repairing, or paying interest charges for the benefits. Army taxes Local transportation expenses. Army taxes    You may be able to deduct your ordinary and necessary local transportation expenses if you incur them to collect rental income or to manage, conserve, or maintain your rental property. Army taxes However, transportation expenses incurred to travel between your home and a rental property generally constitute nondeductible commuting costs unless you use your home as your principal place of business. Army taxes See Publication 587, Business Use of Your Home, for information on determining if your home office qualifies as a principal place of business. Army taxes   Generally, if you use your personal car, pickup truck, or light van for rental activities, you can deduct the expenses using one of two methods: actual expenses or the standard mileage rate. Army taxes For 2013, the standard mileage rate for business use is 56. Army taxes 5 cents per mile. Army taxes For more information, see chapter 26. Army taxes    To deduct car expenses under either method, you must keep records that follow the rules in chapter 26. Army taxes In addition, you must complete Form 4562, Part V, and attach it to your tax return. Army taxes Rental of equipment. Army taxes   You can deduct the rent you pay for equipment that you use for rental purposes. Army taxes However, in some cases, lease contracts are actually purchase contracts. Army taxes If so, you cannot deduct these payments. Army taxes You can recover the cost of purchased equipment through depreciation. Army taxes Rental of property. Army taxes   You can deduct the rent you pay for property that you use for rental purposes. Army taxes If you buy a leasehold for rental purposes, you can deduct an equal part of the cost each year over the term of the lease. Army taxes Travel expenses. Army taxes   You can deduct the ordinary and necessary expenses of traveling away from home if the primary purpose of the trip is to collect rental income or to manage, conserve, or maintain your rental property. Army taxes You must properly allocate your expenses between rental and nonrental activities. Army taxes You cannot deduct the cost of traveling away from home if the primary purpose of the trip was to improve your property. Army taxes You recover the cost of improvements by taking depreciation. Army taxes For information on travel expenses, see chapter 26. Army taxes    To deduct travel expenses, you must keep records that follow the rules in chapter 26. Army taxes   See Rental Expenses in Publication 527 for more information. Army taxes Property Changed to Rental Use If you change your home or other property (or a part of it) to rental use at any time other than the beginning of your tax year, you must divide yearly expenses, such as taxes and insurance, between rental use and personal use. Army taxes You can deduct as rental expenses only the part of the expense that is for the part of the year the property was used or held for rental purposes. Army taxes You cannot deduct depreciation or insurance for the part of the year the property was held for personal use. Army taxes However, you can include the home mortgage interest, qualified mortgage insurance premiums, and real estate tax expenses for the part of the year the property was held for personal use as an itemized deduction on Schedule A (Form 1040). Army taxes Example. Army taxes Your tax year is the calendar year. Army taxes You moved from your home in May and started renting it out on June 1. Army taxes You can deduct as rental expenses seven-twelfths of your yearly expenses, such as taxes and insurance. Army taxes Starting with June, you can deduct as rental expenses the amounts you pay for items generally billed monthly, such as utilities. Army taxes Renting Part of Property If you rent part of your property, you must divide certain expenses between the part of the property used for rental purposes and the part of the property used for personal purposes, as though you actually had two separate pieces of property. Army taxes You can deduct the expenses related to the part of the property used for rental purposes, such as home mortgage interest, qualified mortgage insurance premiums, and real estate taxes, as rental expenses on Schedule E (Form 1040). Army taxes You can also deduct as rental expenses a portion of other expenses that normally are nondeductible personal expenses, such as expenses for electricity or painting the outside of your house. Army taxes There is no change in the types of expenses deductible for the personal-use part of your property. Army taxes Generally, these expenses may be deducted only if you itemize your deductions on Schedule A (Form 1040). Army taxes You cannot deduct any part of the cost of the first phone line even if your tenants have unlimited use of it. Army taxes You do not have to divide the expenses that belong only to the rental part of your property. Army taxes For example, if you paint a room that you rent, or if you pay premiums for liability insurance in connection with renting a room in your home, your entire cost is a rental expense. Army taxes If you install a second phone line strictly for your tenants' use, all of the cost of the second line is deductible as a rental expense. Army taxes You can deduct depreciation, discussed later, on the part of the house used for rental purposes as well as on the furniture and equipment you use for rental purposes. Army taxes How to divide expenses. Army taxes   If an expense is for both rental use and personal use, such as mortgage interest or heat for the entire house, you must divide the expense between the rental use and the personal use. Army taxes You can use any reasonable method for dividing the expense. Army taxes It may be reasonable to divide the cost of some items (for example, water) based on the number of people using them. Army taxes The two most common methods for dividing an expense are based on (1) the number of rooms in your home, and (2) the square footage of your home. Army taxes Not Rented for Profit If you do not rent your property to make a profit, you can deduct your rental expenses only up to the amount of your rental income. Army taxes You cannot deduct a loss or carry forward to the next year any rental expenses that are more than your rental income for the year. Army taxes For more information about the rules for an activity not engaged in for profit, see Not-for-Profit Activities in chapter 1 of Publication 535. Army taxes Where to report. Army taxes   Report your not-for-profit rental income on Form 1040, line 21. Army taxes For example, you can include your mortgage interest and any qualified mortgage insurance premiums (if you use the property as your main home or second home), real estate taxes, and casualty losses on the appropriate lines of Schedule A (Form 1040) if you itemize your deductions. Army taxes   If you itemize your deductions, claim your other rental expenses, subject to the rules explained in chapter 1 of Publication 535, as miscellaneous itemized deductions on Form 1040, Schedule A, line 23. Army taxes You can deduct these expenses only if they, together with certain other miscellaneous itemized deductions, total more than 2% of your adjusted gross income. Army taxes Personal Use of Dwelling Unit (Including Vacation Home) If you have any personal use of a dwelling unit (including a vacation home) that you rent, you must divide your expenses between rental use and personal use. Army taxes In general, your rental expenses will be no more than your total expenses multiplied by a fraction; the denominator of which is the total number of days the dwelling unit is used and the numerator of which is the total number of days actually rented at a fair rental price. Army taxes Only your rental expenses may be deducted on Schedule E (Form 1040). Army taxes Some of your personal expenses may be deductible if you itemize your deductions on Schedule A (Form 1040). Army taxes You must also determine if the dwelling unit is considered a home. Army taxes The amount of rental expenses that you can deduct may be limited if the dwelling unit is considered a home. Army taxes Whether a dwelling unit is considered a home depends on how many days during the year are considered to be days of personal use. Army taxes There is a special rule if you used the dwelling unit as a home and you rented it for less than 15 days during the year. Army taxes Dwelling unit. Army taxes   A dwelling unit includes a house, apartment, condominium, mobile home, boat, vacation home, or similar property. Army taxes It also includes all structures or other property belonging to the dwelling unit. Army taxes A dwelling unit has basic living accommodations, such as sleeping space, a toilet, and cooking facilities. Army taxes   A dwelling unit does not include property used solely as a hotel, motel, inn, or similar establishment. Army taxes Property is used solely as a hotel, motel, inn, or similar establishment if it is regularly available for occupancy by paying customers and is not used by an owner as a home during the year. Army taxes Example. Army taxes   You rent a room in your home that is always available for short-term occupancy by paying customers. Army taxes You do not use the room yourself, and you allow only paying customers to use the room. Army taxes The room is used solely as a hotel, motel, inn, or similar establishment and is not a dwelling unit. Army taxes Dividing Expenses If you use a dwelling unit for both rental and personal purposes, divide your expenses between the rental use and the personal use based on the number of days used for each purpose. Army taxes When dividing your expenses, follow these rules. Army taxes Any day that the unit is rented at a fair rental price is a day of rental use even if you used the unit for personal purposes that day. Army taxes This rule does not apply when determining whether you used the unit as a home. Army taxes Any day that the unit is available for rent but not actually rented is not a day of rental use. Army taxes Example. Army taxes Your beach cottage was available for rent from June 1 through August 31 (92 days). Army taxes During that time, except for the first week in August (7 days) when you were unable to find a renter, you rented the cottage at a fair rental price. Army taxes The person who rented the cottage for July allowed you to use it over the weekend (2 days) without any reduction in or refund of rent. Army taxes Your family also used the cottage during the last 2 weeks of May (14 days). Army taxes The cottage was not used at all before May 17 or after August 31. Army taxes You figure the part of the cottage expenses to treat as rental expenses as follows. Army taxes The cottage was used for rental a total of 85 days (92 − 7). Army taxes The days it was available for rent but not rented (7 days) are not days of rental use. Army taxes The July weekend (2 days) you used it is rental use because you received a fair rental price for the weekend. Army taxes You used the cottage for personal purposes for 14 days (the last 2 weeks in May). Army taxes The total use of the cottage was 99 days (14 days personal use + 85 days rental use). Army taxes Your rental expenses are 85/99 (86%) of the cottage expenses. Army taxes Note. Army taxes When determining whether you used the cottage as a home, the July weekend (2 days) you used it is considered personal use even though you received a fair rental price for the weekend. Army taxes Therefore, you had 16 days of personal use and 83 days of rental use for this purpose. Army taxes Because you used the cottage for personal purposes more than 14 days and more than 10% of the days of rental use (8 days), you used it as a home. Army taxes If you have a net loss, you may not be able to deduct all of the rental expenses. Army taxes See Dwelling Unit Used as a Home, next. Army taxes Dwelling Unit Used as a Home If you use a dwelling unit for both rental and personal purposes, the tax treatment of the rental expenses you figured earlier under Dividing Expenses and rental income depends on whether you are considered to be using the dwelling unit as a home. Army taxes You use a dwelling unit as a home during the tax year if you use it for personal purposes more than the greater of: 14 days, or 10% of the total days it is rented to others at a fair rental price. Army taxes See What is a day of personal use , later. Army taxes Fair rental price. Army taxes   A fair rental price for your property generally is the amount of rent that a person who is not related to you would be willing to pay. Army taxes The rent you charge is not a fair rental price if it is substantially less than the rents charged for other properties that are similar to your property in your area. Army taxes   If a dwelling unit is used for personal purposes on a day it is rented at a fair rental price, do not count that day as a day of rental use in applying (2) above. Army taxes Instead, count it as a day of personal use in applying both (1) and (2) above. Army taxes What is a day of personal use?   A day of personal use of a dwelling unit is any day that the unit is used by any of the following persons. Army taxes You or any other person who has an interest in the unit, unless you rent it to another owner as his or her main home under a shared equity financing agreement (defined later). Army taxes However, see Days used as a main home before or after renting , later. Army taxes A member of your family or a member of the family of any other person who owns an interest in the unit, unless the family member uses the dwelling unit as his or her main home and pays a fair rental price. Army taxes Family includes only your spouse, brothers and sisters, half-brothers and half-sisters, ancestors (parents, grandparents, etc. Army taxes ), and lineal descendants (children, grandchildren, etc. Army taxes ). Army taxes Anyone under an arrangement that lets you use some other dwelling unit. Army taxes Anyone at less than a fair rental price. Army taxes Main home. Army taxes   If the other person or member of the family in (1) or (2) above has more than one home, his or her main home is ordinarily the one he or she lived in most of the time. Army taxes Shared equity financing agreement. Army taxes   This is an agreement under which two or more persons acquire undivided interests for more than 50 years in an entire dwelling unit, including the land, and one or more of the co-owners is entitled to occupy the unit as his or her main home upon payment of rent to the other co-owner or owners. Army taxes Donation of use of property. Army taxes   You use a dwelling unit for personal purposes if: You donate the use of the unit to a charitable organization, The organization sells the use of the unit at a fund-raising event, and The “purchaser” uses the unit. Army taxes Examples. Army taxes   The following examples show how to determine days of personal use. Army taxes Example 1. Army taxes You and your neighbor are co-owners of a condominium at the beach. Army taxes Last year, you rented the unit to vacationers whenever possible. Army taxes The unit was not used as a main home by anyone. Army taxes Your neighbor used the unit for 2 weeks last year; you did not use it at all. Army taxes Because your neighbor has an interest in the unit, both of you are considered to have used the unit for personal purposes during those 2 weeks. Army taxes Example 2. Army taxes You and your neighbors are co-owners of a house under a shared equity financing agreement. Army taxes Your neighbors live in the house and pay you a fair rental price. Army taxes Even though your neighbors have an interest in the house, the days your neighbors live there are not counted as days of personal use by you. Army taxes This is because your neighbors rent the house as their main home under a shared equity financing agreement. Army taxes Example 3. Army taxes You own a rental property that you rent to your son. Army taxes Your son does not own any interest in this property. Army taxes He uses it as his main home and pays you a fair rental price. Army taxes Your son's use of the property is not personal use by you because your son is using it as his main home, he owns no interest in the property, and he is paying you a fair rental price. Army taxes Example 4. Army taxes You rent your beach house to Joshua. Army taxes Joshua rents his cabin in the mountains to you. Army taxes You each pay a fair rental price. Army taxes You are using your house for personal purposes on the days that Joshua uses it because your house is used by Joshua under an arrangement that allows you to use his house. Army taxes Days used for repairs and maintenance. Army taxes   Any day that you spend working substantially full time repairing and maintaining (not improving) your property is not counted as a day of personal use. Army taxes Do not count such a day as a day of personal use even if family members use the property for recreational purposes on the same day. Army taxes Days used as a main home before or after renting. Army taxes   For purposes of determining whether a dwelling unit was used as a home, you may not have to count days you used the property as your main home before or after renting it or offering it for rent as days of personal use. Army taxes Do not count them as days of personal use if: You rented or tried to rent the property for 12 or more consecutive months. Army taxes You rented or tried to rent the property for a period of less than 12 consecutive months and the period ended because you sold or exchanged the property. Army taxes However, this special rule does not apply when dividing expenses between rental and personal use. Army taxes Examples. Army taxes   The following examples show how to determine whether you used your rental property as a home. Army taxes Example 1. Army taxes You converted the basement of your home into an apartment with a bedroom, a bathroom, and a small kitchen. Army taxes You rented the basement apartment at a fair rental price to college students during the regular school year. Army taxes You rented to them on a 9-month lease (273 days). Army taxes You figured 10% of the total days rented to others at a fair rental price is 27 days. Army taxes During June (30 days), your brothers stayed with you and lived in the basement apartment rent free. Army taxes Your basement apartment was used as a home because you used it for personal purposes for 30 days. Army taxes Rent-free use by your brothers is considered personal use. Army taxes Your personal use (30 days) is more than the greater of 14 days or 10% of the total days it was rented (27 days). Army taxes Example 2. Army taxes You rented the guest bedroom in your home at a fair rental price during the local college's homecoming, commencement, and football weekends (a total of 27 days). Army taxes Your sister-in-law stayed in the room, rent free, for the last 3 weeks (21 days) in July. Army taxes You figured 10% of the total days rented to others at a fair rental price is 3 days. Army taxes The room was used as a home because you used it for personal purposes for 21 days. Army taxes That is more than the greater of 14 days or 10% of the 27 days it was rented (3 days). Army taxes Example 3. Army taxes You own a condominium apartment in a resort area. Army taxes You rented it at a fair rental price for a total of 170 days during the year. Army taxes For 12 of those days, the tenant was not able to use the apartment and allowed you to use it even though you did not refund any of the rent. Army taxes Your family actually used the apartment for 10 of those days. Army taxes Therefore, the apartment is treated as having been rented for 160 (170 − 10) days. Army taxes You figured 10% of the total days rented to others at a fair rental price is 16 days. Army taxes Your family also used the apartment for 7 other days during the year. Army taxes You used the apartment as a home because you used it for personal purposes for 17 days. Army taxes That is more than the greater of 14 days or 10% of the 160 days it was rented (16 days). Army taxes Minimal rental use. Army taxes   If you use the dwelling unit as a home and you rent it less than 15 days during the year, that period is not treated as rental activity. Army taxes See Used as a home but rented less than 15 days , later, for more information. Army taxes Limit on deductions. Army taxes   Renting a dwelling unit that is considered a home is not a passive activity. Army taxes Instead, if your rental expenses are more than your rental income, some or all of the excess expenses cannot be used to offset income from other sources. Army taxes The excess expenses that cannot be used to offset income from other sources are carried forward to the next year and treated as rental expenses for the same property. Army taxes Any expenses carried forward to the next year will be subject to any limits that apply for that year. Army taxes This limitation will apply to expenses carried forward to another year even if you do not use the property as your home for that subsequent year. Army taxes   To figure your deductible rental expenses for this year and any carryover to next year, use Worksheet 9-1. Army taxes Reporting Income and Deductions Property not used for personal purposes. Army taxes   If you do not use a dwelling unit for personal purposes, see How To Report Rental Income and Expenses , later, for how to report your rental income and expenses. Army taxes Property used for personal purposes. Army taxes   If you do use a dwelling unit for personal purposes, then how you report your rental income and expenses depends on whether you used the dwelling unit as a home. Army taxes Not used as a home. Army taxes   If you use a dwelling unit for personal purposes, but not as a home, report all the rental income in your income. Army taxes Since you used the dwelling unit for personal purposes, you must divide your expenses between the rental use and the personal use as described earlier in Dividing Expenses . Army taxes The expenses for personal use are not deductible as rental expenses. Army taxes   Your deductible rental expenses can be more than your gross rental income; however, see Limits on Rental Losses , later. Army taxes Used as a home but rented less than 15 days. Army taxes   If you use a dwelling unit as a home and you rent it less than 15 days during the year, its primary function is not considered to be rental and it should not be reported on Schedule E (Form 1040). Army taxes You are not required to report the rental income and rental expenses from this activity. Army taxes The expenses, including qualified mortgage interest, property taxes, and any qualified casualty loss will be reported as normally allowed on Schedule A (Form 1040). Army taxes See the Instructions for Schedule A (Form 1040) for more information on deducting these expenses. Army taxes Used as a home and rented 15 days or more. Army taxes   If you use a dwelling unit as a home and rent it 15 days or more during the year, include all your rental income in your income. Army taxes Since you used the dwelling unit for personal purposes, you must divide your expenses between the rental use and the personal use as described earlier in Dividing Expenses . Army taxes The expenses for personal use are not deductible as rental expenses. Army taxes   If you had a net profit from renting the dwelling unit for the year (that is, if your rental income is more than the total of your rental expenses, including depreciation), deduct all of your rental expenses. Army taxes You do not need to use Worksheet 9-1. Army taxes   However, if you had a net loss from renting the dwelling unit for the year, your deduction for certain rental expenses is limited. Army taxes To figure your deductible rental expenses and any carryover to next year, use Worksheet 9-1. Army taxes Depreciation You recover the cost of income-producing property through yearly tax deductions. Army taxes You do this by depreciating the property; that is, by deducting some of the cost each year on your tax return. Army taxes Three factors determine how much depreciation you can deduct each year: (1) your basis in the property, (2) the recovery period for the property, and (3) the depreciation method used. Army taxes You cannot simply deduct your mortgage or principal payments, or the cost of furniture, fixtures, and equipment, as an expense. Army taxes You can deduct depreciation only on the part of your property used for rental purposes. Army taxes Depreciation reduces your basis for figuring gain or loss on a later sale or exchange. Army taxes You may have to use Form 4562 to figure and report your depreciation. Army taxes See How To Report Rental Income and Expenses , later. Army taxes Alternative minimum tax (AMT). Army taxes    If you use accelerated depreciation, you may be subject to the AMT. Army taxes Accelerated depreciation allows you to deduct more depreciation earlier in the recovery period than you could deduct using a straight line method (same deduction each year). Army taxes Claiming the correct amount of depreciation. Army taxes   You should claim the correct amount of depreciation each tax year. Army taxes If you did not claim all the depreciation you were entitled to deduct, you must still reduce your basis in the property by the full amount of depreciation that you could have deducted. Army taxes   If you deducted an incorrect amount of depreciation for property in any year, you may be able to make a correction by filing Form 1040X, Amended U. Army taxes S Individual Income Tax Return. Army taxes If you are not allowed to make the correction on an amended return, you can change your accounting method to claim the correct amount of depreciation. Army taxes See Claiming the correct amount of depreciation in chapter 2 of Publication 527 for more information. Army taxes Changing your accounting method to deduct unclaimed depreciation. Army taxes   To change your accounting method, you generally must file Form 3115, Application for Change in Accounting Method, to get the consent of the IRS. Army taxes In some instances, that consent is automatic. Army taxes For more information, see chapter 1 of Publication 946. Army taxes Land. Army taxes   You cannot depreciate the cost of land because land generally does not wear out, become obsolete, or get used up. Army taxes The costs of clearing, grading, planting, and landscaping are usually all part of the cost of land and cannot be depreciated. Army taxes More information. Army taxes   See Publication 527 for more information about depreciating rental property and see Publication 946 for more information about depreciation. Army taxes Limits on Rental Losses If you have a loss from your rental real estate activity, two sets of rules may limit the amount of loss you can deduct. Army taxes You must consider these rules in the order shown below. Army taxes At-risk rules. Army taxes These rules are applied first if there is investment in your rental real estate activity for which you are not at risk. Army taxes This applies only if the real property was placed in service after 1986. Army taxes Passive activity limits. Army taxes Generally, rental real estate activities are considered passive activities and losses are not deductible unless you have income from other passive activities to offset them. Army taxes However, there are exceptions. Army taxes At-Risk Rules You may be subject to the at-risk rules if you have: A loss from an activity carried on as a trade or business or for the production of income, and Amounts invested in the activity for which you are not fully at risk. Army taxes Losses from holding real property (other than mineral property) placed in service before 1987 are not subject to the at-risk rules. Army taxes In most cases, any loss from an activity subject to the at-risk rules is allowed only to the extent of the total amount you have at risk in the activity at the end of the tax year. Army taxes You are considered at risk in an activity to the extent of cash and the adjusted basis of other property you contributed to the activity and certain amounts borrowed for use in the activity. Army taxes See Publication 925 for more information. Army taxes Passive Activity Limits In most cases, all rental real estate activities (except those of certain real estate professionals, discussed later) are passive activities. Army taxes For this purpose, a rental activity is an activity from which you receive income mainly for the use of tangible property, rather than for services. Army taxes Limits on passive activity deductions and credits. Army taxes    Deductions or losses from passive activities are limited. Army taxes You generally cannot offset income, other than passive income, with losses from passive activities. Army taxes Nor can you offset taxes on income, other than passive income, with credits resulting from passive activities. Army taxes Any excess loss or credit is carried forward to the next tax year. Army taxes   For a detailed discussion of these rules, see Publication 925. Army taxes    You may have to complete Form 8582 to figure the amount of any passive activity loss for the current tax year for all activities and the amount of the passive activity loss allowed on your tax return. Army taxes Real estate professionals. Army taxes   Rental activities in which you materially participated during the year are not passive activities if, for that year, you were a real estate professional. Army taxes For a detailed discussion of the requirements, see Publication 527. Army taxes For a detailed discussion of material participation, see Publication 925. Army taxes Exception for Personal Use of Dwelling Unit If you used the rental property as a home during the year, any income, deductions, gain, or loss allocable to such use shall not be taken into account for purposes of the passive activity loss limitation. Army taxes Instead, follow the rules explained in Personal Use of Dwelling Unit (Including Vacation Home), earlier. Army taxes Exception for Rental Real Estate Activities With Active Participation If you or your spouse actively participated in a passive rental real estate activity, you may be able to deduct up to $25,000 of loss from the activity from your nonpassive income. Army taxes This special allowance is an exception to the general rule disallowing losses in excess of income from passive activities. Army taxes Similarly, you may be able to offset credits from the activity against the tax on up to $25,000 of nonpassive income after taking into account any losses allowed under this exception. Army taxes Active participation. Army taxes   You actively participated in a rental real estate activity if you (and your spouse) owned at least 10% of the rental property and you made management decisions or arranged for others to provide services (such as repairs) in a significant and bona fide sense. Army taxes Management decisions that may count as active participation include approving new tenants, deciding on rental terms, approving expenditures, and similar decisions. Army taxes Maximum special allowance. Army taxes   The maximum special allowance is: $25,000 for single individuals and married individuals filing a joint return for the tax year, $12,500 for married individuals who file separate returns for the tax year and lived apart from their spouses at all times during the tax year, and $25,000 for a qualifying estate reduced by the special allowance for which the surviving spouse qualified. Army taxes   If your modified adjusted gross income (MAGI) is $100,000 or less ($50,000 or less if married filing separately), you can deduct your loss up to the amount specified above. Army taxes If your MAGI is more than $100,000 (more than $50,000 if married filing separately), your special allowance is limited to 50% of the difference between $150,000 ($75,000 if married filing separately) and your MAGI. Army taxes   Generally, if your MAGI is $150,000 or more ($75,000 or more if you are married filing separately), there is no special allowance. Army taxes More information. Army taxes   See Publication 925 for more information on the passive loss limits, including information on the treatment of unused disallowed passive losses and credits and the treatment of gains and losses realized on the disposition of a passive activity. Army taxes How To Report Rental Income and Expenses The basic form for reporting residential rental income and expenses is Schedule E (Form 1040). Army taxes However, do not use that schedule to report a not-for-profit activity. Army taxes See Not Rented for Profit, earlier. Army taxes Providing substantial services. Army taxes   If you provide substantial services that are primarily for your tenant's convenience, such as regular cleaning, changing linen, or maid service, report your rental income and expenses on Schedule C (Form 1040), Profit or Loss From Business, or Schedule C-EZ (Form 1040), Net Profit From Business (Sole Proprietorship). Army taxes Substantial services do not include the furnishing of heat and light, cleaning of public areas, trash collection, etc. Army taxes For information, see Publication 334, Tax Guide for Small Business. Army taxes You also may have to pay self-employment tax on your rental income using Schedule SE (Form 1040), Self-Employment Tax. Army taxes   Use Form 1065, U. Army taxes S. Army taxes Return of Partnership Income, if your rental activity is a partnership (including a partnership with your spouse unless it is a qualified joint venture). Army taxes Qualified joint venture. Army taxes   If you and your spouse each materially participate as the only members of a jointly owned and operated real estate business, and you file a joint return for the tax year, you can make a joint election to be treated as a qualified joint venture instead of a partnership. Army taxes This election, in most cases, will not increase the total tax owed on the joint return, but it does give each of you credit for social security earnings on which retirement benefits are based and for Medicare coverage if your rental income is subject to self-employment tax. Army taxes For more information, see Publication 527. Army taxes Form 1098, Mortgage Interest Statement. Army taxes    If you paid $600 or more of mortgage interest on your rental property to any one person, you should receive a Form 1098, or similar statement showing the interest you paid for the year. Army taxes If you and at least one other person (other than your spouse if you file a joint return) were liable for, and paid interest on the mortgage, and the other person received the Form 1098, report your share of the interest on Schedule E (Form 1040), line 13. Army taxes Attach a statement to your return showing the name and address of the other person. Army taxes In the left margin of Schedule E, next to line 13, enter “See attached. Army taxes ” Schedule E (Form 1040) If you rent buildings, rooms, or apartments, and provide basic services such as heat and light, trash collection, etc. Army taxes , you normally report your rental income and expenses on Schedule E, Part I.

Army taxes If you have more than three rental or royalty properties, complete and attach as many Schedules E as are needed to list the properties. Army taxes Complete lines 1 and 2 for each property. Army taxes However, fill in lines 23a through 26 on only one Schedule E. Army taxes On Schedule E, page 1, line 18, enter the depreciation you are claiming for each property. Army taxes To find out if you need to attach Form 4562, see Form 4562, in chapter 3 of Publication 527. Army taxes If you have a loss from your rental real estate activity, you also may need to complete one or both of the following forms. Army taxes Form 6198, At-Risk Limitations. Army taxes See At-Risk Rules , earlier. Army taxes Also see Publication 925. Army taxes Form 8582, Passive Activity Loss Limitations. Army taxes See Passive Activity Limits , earlier. Army taxes Page 2 of Schedule E is used to report income or loss from partnerships, S corporations, estates, trusts, and real estate mortgage investment conduits. Army taxes If you need to use page 2 of Schedule E, be sure to use page 2 of the same Schedule E you used to enter your rental activity on page 1.
