Can I Claim It? Income Tax Deduction Information for Coppell Rental Property Owners

Tax deduction written on a piece of paper. As a rental property owner, it’s important to know about the different tax deductions available to you. These deductions can help you reduce your taxable income and increase your profits. Tax deductions are typically claimed for the same tax year in which the expenses were originally incurred. To fully comprehend the specific regulations and criteria for each deduction and to optimize your advantages within the legal boundaries, seeking the guidance of a tax professional or accountant is crucial.

Nondeductible expenses

Alternatively, non-allowable tax deductions are costs that cannot be deducted to lower taxable income. Personal expenses unrelated to the rental property, such as personal trips, clothing, or groceries, are examples; as well as:

  1. Monthly mortgage payments. While mortgage interest and property taxes are both deductible, loan principal payments are not.
  2. Even when the entertainment is connected to your business, entertainment costs are not deductible. Business dinners, on the other hand, are still deductible, though the restrictions have changed under the new rule.
  3. Business gifts valued over $25 and given to any one person during the tax year are not deductible.
  4. Club dues, such as subscriptions to gyms, country clubs, or other clubs, are not deductible even if you are entertaining for business purposes.
  5. Capital improvement costs such as installing new windows or a new roof on your rental house, must be depreciated not deducted.
  6. Other taxes, including state income taxes and local sales tax. These should be included in your personal income tax return.
  7. Fines and penalties, such as those levied by the IRS for underpayment of a prior year’s taxes and late payment fines.
  8. Political contributions, including anything spent on lobbying costs or campaign events.
  9. Home office space unless it is used exclusively for business purposes. Even having a family computer in the room may mean that your home office deduction is disallowed.
