Owning rental properties can be a great investment, but there are certain tax considerations you need to keep in mind when it comes to renting out your property. Different tax rules apply to different kinds of rental properties, so this type of real estate investment can make your taxes complicated fast.
For example, do you rent out your vacation home? If so, the deductions can depend on how many days per year you rent out the house versus how many days a year the home is used for your personal use (including renting the space to relatives!). Or do you rent out just a part of your house, such as a room or basement apartment? In these cases, expenses such as real estate tax and mortgage interest must be divided as though you have two separate pieces of property.
