Rental Property Tax Deductions

I’m not sure how a guy who doesn’t even do his own taxes ended up presenting an entire class on rental property tax deductions, but that’s exactly what happened.

This class was taught on January 6, 2021 by James and IRS Enrolled Agent, Jassen Bowman via webinar.

Here are the rental property tax deductions covered:

  1. Above the line versus below the line and a discussion of standard deduction versus itemizing your deductions
  2. The tax free sale of a primary residence including how this often confusing for new Nomads™, the 2 out of 5 year rule and more.
  3. House hacking and roommates and how to calculate the percentage of your property you’re using as a rental
  4. Depreciation, how it works and some real estate investing rules of thumb
  5. Depreciation recapture and how that works (it is different than what I thought heading into the webinar)
  6. Accelerating depreciation through cost segregation
  7. Deducting repairs and maintenance including some safe harbor provisions
  8. Deducting utilities and dealing with billback and including utilities in rent
  9. Home office deduction and how to calculate the percentage
