Mypay dfas mil mypay Rental income is any payment you receive for the use or occupation of property. Mypay dfas mil mypay In addition to amounts you receive as normal rent payments, there are other amounts that may be rental income. Mypay dfas mil mypay When to report. Mypay dfas mil mypay   If you are a cash-basis taxpayer, you report rental income on your return for the year you actually or constructively receive it. Mypay dfas mil mypay You are a cash-basis taxpayer if you report income in the year you receive it, regardless of when it was earned. Mypay dfas mil mypay You constructively receive income when it is made available to you, for example, by being credited to your bank account. Mypay dfas mil mypay   For more information about when you constructively receive income, see Accounting Methods in chapter 1. Mypay dfas mil mypay Advance rent. Mypay dfas mil mypay   Advance rent is any amount you receive before the period that it covers. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay Example. Mypay dfas mil mypay You sign a 10-year lease to rent your property. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay You must include $10,000 in your income in the first year. Mypay dfas mil mypay Canceling a lease. Mypay dfas mil mypay   If your tenant pays you to cancel a lease, the amount you receive is rent. Mypay dfas mil mypay Include the payment in your income in the year you receive it regardless of your method of accounting. Mypay dfas mil mypay Expenses paid by tenant. Mypay dfas mil mypay   If your tenant pays any of your expenses, the payments are rental income. Mypay dfas mil mypay Because you must include this amount in income, you can deduct the expenses if they are deductible rental expenses. Mypay dfas mil mypay See Rental Expenses , later, for more information. Mypay dfas mil mypay Property or services. Mypay dfas mil mypay   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. Mypay dfas mil mypay   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. Mypay dfas mil mypay Security deposits. Mypay dfas mil mypay   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. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay   If an amount called a security deposit is to be used as a final payment of rent, it is advance rent. Mypay dfas mil mypay Include it in your income when you receive it. Mypay dfas mil mypay Part interest. Mypay dfas mil mypay   If you own a part interest in rental property, you must report your part of the rental income from the property. Mypay dfas mil mypay Rental of property also used as your home. Mypay dfas mil mypay   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. Mypay dfas mil mypay However, you can deduct on Schedule A (Form 1040) the interest, taxes, and casualty and theft losses that are allowed for nonrental property. Mypay dfas mil mypay See Personal Use of Dwelling Unit (Including Vacation Home) , later. Mypay dfas mil mypay Rental Expenses This part discusses expenses of renting property that you ordinarily can deduct from your rental income. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay Depreciation , which you can also deduct from your rental income, is discussed later. Mypay dfas mil mypay Personal use of rental property. Mypay dfas mil mypay   If you sometimes use your rental property for personal purposes, you must divide your expenses between rental and personal use. Mypay dfas mil mypay Also, your rental expense deductions may be limited. Mypay dfas mil mypay See Personal Use of Dwelling Unit (Including Vacation Home) , later. Mypay dfas mil mypay Part interest. Mypay dfas mil mypay   If you own a part interest in rental property, you can deduct expenses that you paid according to your percentage of ownership. Mypay dfas mil mypay When to deduct. Mypay dfas mil mypay   If you are a cash-basis taxpayer, you generally deduct your rental expenses in the year you pay them. Mypay dfas mil mypay Depreciation. Mypay dfas mil mypay   You can begin to depreciate rental property when it is ready and available for rent. Mypay dfas mil mypay See Placed-in-Service under When Does Depreciation Begin and End in chapter 2 of Publication 527. Mypay dfas mil mypay Pre-rental expenses. Mypay dfas mil mypay   You can deduct your ordinary and necessary expenses for managing, conserving, or maintaining rental property from the time you make it available for rent. Mypay dfas mil mypay Uncollected rent. Mypay dfas mil mypay   If you are a cash-basis taxpayer, do not deduct uncollected rent. Mypay dfas mil mypay Because you have not included it in your income, it is not deductible. Mypay dfas mil mypay Vacant rental property. Mypay dfas mil mypay   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. Mypay dfas mil mypay However, you cannot deduct any loss of rental income for the period the property is vacant. Mypay dfas mil mypay Vacant while listed for sale. Mypay dfas mil mypay   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. Mypay dfas mil mypay If the property is not held out and available for rent while listed for sale, the expenses are not deductible rental expenses. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay Improvements. Mypay dfas mil mypay   You must capitalize any expense you pay to improve your rental property. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay Betterments. Mypay dfas mil mypay   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. Mypay dfas mil mypay Restoration. Mypay dfas mil mypay   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. Mypay dfas mil mypay Adaptation. Mypay dfas mil mypay   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. Mypay dfas mil mypay Separate the costs of repairs and improvements, and keep accurate records. Mypay dfas mil mypay You will need to know the cost of improvements when you sell or depreciate your property. Mypay dfas mil mypay The expenses you capitalize for improving your property can generally be depreciated as if the improvement were separate property. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay Insurance premiums paid in advance. Mypay dfas mil mypay   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. Mypay dfas mil mypay You cannot deduct the total premium in the year you pay it. Mypay dfas mil mypay Legal and other professional fees. Mypay dfas mil mypay   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. Mypay dfas mil mypay For example, on your 2013 Schedule E, you can deduct fees paid in 2013 to prepare your 2012 Schedule E, Part I. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay Local benefit taxes. Mypay dfas mil mypay   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. Mypay dfas mil mypay These charges are nondepreciable capital expenditures, and must be added to the basis of your property. Mypay dfas mil mypay However, you can deduct local benefit taxes that are for maintaining, repairing, or paying interest charges for the benefits. Mypay dfas mil mypay Local transportation expenses. Mypay dfas mil mypay    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. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay See Publication 587, Business Use of Your Home, for information on determining if your home office qualifies as a principal place of business. Mypay dfas mil mypay   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. Mypay dfas mil mypay For 2013, the standard mileage rate for business use is 56. Mypay dfas mil mypay 5 cents per mile. Mypay dfas mil mypay For more information, see chapter 26. Mypay dfas mil mypay    To deduct car expenses under either method, you must keep records that follow the rules in chapter 26. Mypay dfas mil mypay In addition, you must complete Form 4562, Part V, and attach it to your tax return. Mypay dfas mil mypay Rental of equipment. Mypay dfas mil mypay   You can deduct the rent you pay for equipment that you use for rental purposes. Mypay dfas mil mypay However, in some cases, lease contracts are actually purchase contracts. Mypay dfas mil mypay If so, you cannot deduct these payments. Mypay dfas mil mypay You can recover the cost of purchased equipment through depreciation. Mypay dfas mil mypay Rental of property. Mypay dfas mil mypay   You can deduct the rent you pay for property that you use for rental purposes. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay Travel expenses. Mypay dfas mil mypay   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. Mypay dfas mil mypay You must properly allocate your expenses between rental and nonrental activities. Mypay dfas mil mypay You cannot deduct the cost of traveling away from home if the primary purpose of the trip was to improve your property. Mypay dfas mil mypay You recover the cost of improvements by taking depreciation. Mypay dfas mil mypay For information on travel expenses, see chapter 26. Mypay dfas mil mypay    To deduct travel expenses, you must keep records that follow the rules in chapter 26. Mypay dfas mil mypay   See Rental Expenses in Publication 527 for more information. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay You cannot deduct depreciation or insurance for the part of the year the property was held for personal use. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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). Mypay dfas mil mypay Example. Mypay dfas mil mypay Your tax year is the calendar year. Mypay dfas mil mypay You moved from your home in May and started renting it out on June 1. Mypay dfas mil mypay You can deduct as rental expenses seven-twelfths of your yearly expenses, such as taxes and insurance. Mypay dfas mil mypay Starting with June, you can deduct as rental expenses the amounts you pay for items generally billed monthly, such as utilities. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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). Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay There is no change in the types of expenses deductible for the personal-use part of your property. Mypay dfas mil mypay Generally, these expenses may be deducted only if you itemize your deductions on Schedule A (Form 1040). Mypay dfas mil mypay You cannot deduct any part of the cost of the first phone line even if your tenants have unlimited use of it. Mypay dfas mil mypay You do not have to divide the expenses that belong only to the rental part of your property. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay How to divide expenses. Mypay dfas mil mypay   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. Mypay dfas mil mypay You can use any reasonable method for dividing the expense. Mypay dfas mil mypay It may be reasonable to divide the cost of some items (for example, water) based on the number of people using them. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay Where to report. Mypay dfas mil mypay   Report your not-for-profit rental income on Form 1040, line 21. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay   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. Mypay dfas mil mypay You can deduct these expenses only if they, together with certain other miscellaneous itemized deductions, total more than 2% of your adjusted gross income. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay Only your rental expenses may be deducted on Schedule E (Form 1040). Mypay dfas mil mypay Some of your personal expenses may be deductible if you itemize your deductions on Schedule A (Form 1040). Mypay dfas mil mypay You must also determine if the dwelling unit is considered a home. Mypay dfas mil mypay The amount of rental expenses that you can deduct may be limited if the dwelling unit is considered a home. Mypay dfas mil mypay Whether a dwelling unit is considered a home depends on how many days during the year are considered to be days of personal use. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay Dwelling unit. Mypay dfas mil mypay   A dwelling unit includes a house, apartment, condominium, mobile home, boat, vacation home, or similar property. Mypay dfas mil mypay It also includes all structures or other property belonging to the dwelling unit. Mypay dfas mil mypay A dwelling unit has basic living accommodations, such as sleeping space, a toilet, and cooking facilities. Mypay dfas mil mypay   A dwelling unit does not include property used solely as a hotel, motel, inn, or similar establishment. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay Example. Mypay dfas mil mypay   You rent a room in your home that is always available for short-term occupancy by paying customers. Mypay dfas mil mypay You do not use the room yourself, and you allow only paying customers to use the room. Mypay dfas mil mypay The room is used solely as a hotel, motel, inn, or similar establishment and is not a dwelling unit. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay When dividing your expenses, follow these rules. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay This rule does not apply when determining whether you used the unit as a home. Mypay dfas mil mypay Any day that the unit is available for rent but not actually rented is not a day of rental use. Mypay dfas mil mypay Example. Mypay dfas mil mypay Your beach cottage was available for rent from June 1 through August 31 (92 days). Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay Your family also used the cottage during the last 2 weeks of May (14 days). Mypay dfas mil mypay The cottage was not used at all before May 17 or after August 31. Mypay dfas mil mypay You figure the part of the cottage expenses to treat as rental expenses as follows. Mypay dfas mil mypay The cottage was used for rental a total of 85 days (92 − 7). Mypay dfas mil mypay The days it was available for rent but not rented (7 days) are not days of rental use. Mypay dfas mil mypay The July weekend (2 days) you used it is rental use because you received a fair rental price for the weekend. Mypay dfas mil mypay You used the cottage for personal purposes for 14 days (the last 2 weeks in May). Mypay dfas mil mypay The total use of the cottage was 99 days (14 days personal use + 85 days rental use). Mypay dfas mil mypay Your rental expenses are 85/99 (86%) of the cottage expenses. Mypay dfas mil mypay Note. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay Therefore, you had 16 days of personal use and 83 days of rental use for this purpose. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay If you have a net loss, you may not be able to deduct all of the rental expenses. Mypay dfas mil mypay See Dwelling Unit Used as a Home, next. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay See What is a day of personal use , later. Mypay dfas mil mypay Fair rental price. Mypay dfas mil mypay   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. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay   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. Mypay dfas mil mypay Instead, count it as a day of personal use in applying both (1) and (2) above. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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). Mypay dfas mil mypay However, see Days used as a main home before or after renting , later. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay Family includes only your spouse, brothers and sisters, half-brothers and half-sisters, ancestors (parents, grandparents, etc. Mypay dfas mil mypay ), and lineal descendants (children, grandchildren, etc. Mypay dfas mil mypay ). Mypay dfas mil mypay Anyone under an arrangement that lets you use some other dwelling unit. Mypay dfas mil mypay Anyone at less than a fair rental price. Mypay dfas mil mypay Main home. Mypay dfas mil mypay   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. Mypay dfas mil mypay Shared equity financing agreement. Mypay dfas mil mypay   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. Mypay dfas mil mypay Donation of use of property. Mypay dfas mil mypay   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. Mypay dfas mil mypay Examples. Mypay dfas mil mypay   The following examples show how to determine days of personal use. Mypay dfas mil mypay Example 1. Mypay dfas mil mypay You and your neighbor are co-owners of a condominium at the beach. Mypay dfas mil mypay Last year, you rented the unit to vacationers whenever possible. Mypay dfas mil mypay The unit was not used as a main home by anyone. Mypay dfas mil mypay Your neighbor used the unit for 2 weeks last year; you did not use it at all. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay Example 2. Mypay dfas mil mypay You and your neighbors are co-owners of a house under a shared equity financing agreement. Mypay dfas mil mypay Your neighbors live in the house and pay you a fair rental price. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay This is because your neighbors rent the house as their main home under a shared equity financing agreement. Mypay dfas mil mypay Example 3. Mypay dfas mil mypay You own a rental property that you rent to your son. Mypay dfas mil mypay Your son does not own any interest in this property. Mypay dfas mil mypay He uses it as his main home and pays you a fair rental price. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay Example 4. Mypay dfas mil mypay You rent your beach house to Joshua. Mypay dfas mil mypay Joshua rents his cabin in the mountains to you. Mypay dfas mil mypay You each pay a fair rental price. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay Days used for repairs and maintenance. Mypay dfas mil mypay   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. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay Days used as a main home before or after renting. Mypay dfas mil mypay   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. Mypay dfas mil mypay Do not count them as days of personal use if: You rented or tried to rent the property for 12 or more consecutive months. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay However, this special rule does not apply when dividing expenses between rental and personal use. Mypay dfas mil mypay Examples. Mypay dfas mil mypay   The following examples show how to determine whether you used your rental property as a home. Mypay dfas mil mypay Example 1. Mypay dfas mil mypay You converted the basement of your home into an apartment with a bedroom, a bathroom, and a small kitchen. Mypay dfas mil mypay You rented the basement apartment at a fair rental price to college students during the regular school year. Mypay dfas mil mypay You rented to them on a 9-month lease (273 days). Mypay dfas mil mypay You figured 10% of the total days rented to others at a fair rental price is 27 days. Mypay dfas mil mypay During June (30 days), your brothers stayed with you and lived in the basement apartment rent free. Mypay dfas mil mypay Your basement apartment was used as a home because you used it for personal purposes for 30 days. Mypay dfas mil mypay Rent-free use by your brothers is considered personal use. Mypay dfas mil mypay Your personal use (30 days) is more than the greater of 14 days or 10% of the total days it was rented (27 days). Mypay dfas mil mypay Example 2. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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). Mypay dfas mil mypay Your sister-in-law stayed in the room, rent free, for the last 3 weeks (21 days) in July. Mypay dfas mil mypay You figured 10% of the total days rented to others at a fair rental price is 3 days. Mypay dfas mil mypay The room was used as a home because you used it for personal purposes for 21 days. Mypay dfas mil mypay That is more than the greater of 14 days or 10% of the 27 days it was rented (3 days). Mypay dfas mil mypay Example 3. Mypay dfas mil mypay You own a condominium apartment in a resort area. Mypay dfas mil mypay You rented it at a fair rental price for a total of 170 days during the year. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay Your family actually used the apartment for 10 of those days. Mypay dfas mil mypay Therefore, the apartment is treated as having been rented for 160 (170 − 10) days. Mypay dfas mil mypay You figured 10% of the total days rented to others at a fair rental price is 16 days. Mypay dfas mil mypay Your family also used the apartment for 7 other days during the year. Mypay dfas mil mypay You used the apartment as a home because you used it for personal purposes for 17 days. Mypay dfas mil mypay That is more than the greater of 14 days or 10% of the 160 days it was rented (16 days). Mypay dfas mil mypay Minimal rental use. Mypay dfas mil mypay   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. Mypay dfas mil mypay See Used as a home but rented less than 15 days , later, for more information. Mypay dfas mil mypay Limit on deductions. Mypay dfas mil mypay   Renting a dwelling unit that is considered a home is not a passive activity. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay Any expenses carried forward to the next year will be subject to any limits that apply for that year. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay   To figure your deductible rental expenses for this year and any carryover to next year, use Worksheet 9-1. Mypay dfas mil mypay Reporting Income and Deductions Property not used for personal purposes. Mypay dfas mil mypay   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. Mypay dfas mil mypay Property used for personal purposes. Mypay dfas mil mypay   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. Mypay dfas mil mypay Not used as a home. Mypay dfas mil mypay   If you use a dwelling unit for personal purposes, but not as a home, report all the rental income in your income. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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 . Mypay dfas mil mypay The expenses for personal use are not deductible as rental expenses. Mypay dfas mil mypay   Your deductible rental expenses can be more than your gross rental income; however, see Limits on Rental Losses , later. Mypay dfas mil mypay Used as a home but rented less than 15 days. Mypay dfas mil mypay   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). Mypay dfas mil mypay You are not required to report the rental income and rental expenses from this activity. Mypay dfas mil mypay The expenses, including qualified mortgage interest, property taxes, and any qualified casualty loss will be reported as normally allowed on Schedule A (Form 1040). Mypay dfas mil mypay See the Instructions for Schedule A (Form 1040) for more information on deducting these expenses. Mypay dfas mil mypay Used as a home and rented 15 days or more. Mypay dfas mil mypay   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. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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 . Mypay dfas mil mypay The expenses for personal use are not deductible as rental expenses. Mypay dfas mil mypay   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. Mypay dfas mil mypay You do not need to use Worksheet 9-1. Mypay dfas mil mypay   However, if you had a net loss from renting the dwelling unit for the year, your deduction for certain rental expenses is limited. Mypay dfas mil mypay To figure your deductible rental expenses and any carryover to next year, use Worksheet 9-1. Mypay dfas mil mypay Depreciation You recover the cost of income-producing property through yearly tax deductions. Mypay dfas mil mypay You do this by depreciating the property; that is, by deducting some of the cost each year on your tax return. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay You cannot simply deduct your mortgage or principal payments, or the cost of furniture, fixtures, and equipment, as an expense. Mypay dfas mil mypay You can deduct depreciation only on the part of your property used for rental purposes. Mypay dfas mil mypay Depreciation reduces your basis for figuring gain or loss on a later sale or exchange. Mypay dfas mil mypay You may have to use Form 4562 to figure and report your depreciation. Mypay dfas mil mypay See How To Report Rental Income and Expenses , later. Mypay dfas mil mypay Alternative minimum tax (AMT). Mypay dfas mil mypay    If you use accelerated depreciation, you may be subject to the AMT. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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). Mypay dfas mil mypay Claiming the correct amount of depreciation. Mypay dfas mil mypay   You should claim the correct amount of depreciation each tax year. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay   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. Mypay dfas mil mypay S Individual Income Tax Return. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay See Claiming the correct amount of depreciation in chapter 2 of Publication 527 for more information. Mypay dfas mil mypay Changing your accounting method to deduct unclaimed depreciation. Mypay dfas mil mypay   To change your accounting method, you generally must file Form 3115, Application for Change in Accounting Method, to get the consent of the IRS. Mypay dfas mil mypay In some instances, that consent is automatic. Mypay dfas mil mypay For more information, see chapter 1 of Publication 946. Mypay dfas mil mypay Land. Mypay dfas mil mypay   You cannot depreciate the cost of land because land generally does not wear out, become obsolete, or get used up. Mypay dfas mil mypay The costs of clearing, grading, planting, and landscaping are usually all part of the cost of land and cannot be depreciated. Mypay dfas mil mypay More information. Mypay dfas mil mypay   See Publication 527 for more information about depreciating rental property and see Publication 946 for more information about depreciation. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay You must consider these rules in the order shown below. Mypay dfas mil mypay At-risk rules. Mypay dfas mil mypay These rules are applied first if there is investment in your rental real estate activity for which you are not at risk. Mypay dfas mil mypay This applies only if the real property was placed in service after 1986. Mypay dfas mil mypay Passive activity limits. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay However, there are exceptions. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay Losses from holding real property (other than mineral property) placed in service before 1987 are not subject to the at-risk rules. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay See Publication 925 for more information. Mypay dfas mil mypay Passive Activity Limits In most cases, all rental real estate activities (except those of certain real estate professionals, discussed later) are passive activities. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay Limits on passive activity deductions and credits. Mypay dfas mil mypay    Deductions or losses from passive activities are limited. Mypay dfas mil mypay You generally cannot offset income, other than passive income, with losses from passive activities. Mypay dfas mil mypay Nor can you offset taxes on income, other than passive income, with credits resulting from passive activities. Mypay dfas mil mypay Any excess loss or credit is carried forward to the next tax year. Mypay dfas mil mypay   For a detailed discussion of these rules, see Publication 925. Mypay dfas mil mypay    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. Mypay dfas mil mypay Real estate professionals. Mypay dfas mil mypay   Rental activities in which you materially participated during the year are not passive activities if, for that year, you were a real estate professional. Mypay dfas mil mypay For a detailed discussion of the requirements, see Publication 527. Mypay dfas mil mypay For a detailed discussion of material participation, see Publication 925. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay Instead, follow the rules explained in Personal Use of Dwelling Unit (Including Vacation Home), earlier. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay This special allowance is an exception to the general rule disallowing losses in excess of income from passive activities. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay Active participation. Mypay dfas mil mypay   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. Mypay dfas mil mypay Management decisions that may count as active participation include approving new tenants, deciding on rental terms, approving expenditures, and similar decisions. Mypay dfas mil mypay Maximum special allowance. Mypay dfas mil mypay   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. Mypay dfas mil mypay   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. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay   Generally, if your MAGI is $150,000 or more ($75,000 or more if you are married filing separately), there is no special allowance. Mypay dfas mil mypay More information. Mypay dfas mil mypay   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. Mypay dfas mil mypay How To Report Rental Income and Expenses The basic form for reporting residential rental income and expenses is Schedule E (Form 1040). Mypay dfas mil mypay However, do not use that schedule to report a not-for-profit activity. Mypay dfas mil mypay See Not Rented for Profit, earlier. Mypay dfas mil mypay Providing substantial services. Mypay dfas mil mypay   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). Mypay dfas mil mypay Substantial services do not include the furnishing of heat and light, cleaning of public areas, trash collection, etc. Mypay dfas mil mypay For information, see Publication 334, Tax Guide for Small Business. Mypay dfas mil mypay You also may have to pay self-employment tax on your rental income using Schedule SE (Form 1040), Self-Employment Tax. Mypay dfas mil mypay   Use Form 1065, U. Mypay dfas mil mypay S. Mypay dfas mil mypay Return of Partnership Income, if your rental activity is a partnership (including a partnership with your spouse unless it is a qualified joint venture). Mypay dfas mil mypay Qualified joint venture. Mypay dfas mil mypay   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. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay For more information, see Publication 527. Mypay dfas mil mypay Form 1098, Mortgage Interest Statement. Mypay dfas mil mypay    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. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay Attach a statement to your return showing the name and address of the other person. Mypay dfas mil mypay In the left margin of Schedule E, next to line 13, enter “See attached. Mypay dfas mil mypay ” Schedule E (Form 1040) If you rent buildings, rooms, or apartments, and provide basic services such as heat and light, trash collection, etc. Mypay dfas mil mypay , you normally report your rental income and expenses on Schedule E, Part I. Mypay dfas mil mypay List your total income, expenses, and depreciation for each rental property. Mypay dfas mil mypay Be sure to enter the number of fair rental and personal use days on line 2. Mypay dfas mil mypay If you have more than three rental or royalty properties, complete and attach as many Schedules E as are needed to list the properties. Mypay dfas mil mypay Complete lines 1 and 2 for each property. Mypay dfas mil mypay However, fill in lines 23a through 26 on only one Schedule E. Mypay dfas mil mypay On Schedule E, page 1, line 18, enter the depreciation you are claiming for each property. Mypay dfas mil mypay To find out if you need to attach Form 4562, see Form 4562, in chapter 3 of Publication 527. Mypay dfas mil mypay If you have a loss from your rental real estate activity, you also may need to complete one or both of the following forms. Mypay dfas mil mypay Form 6198, At-Risk Limitations. Mypay dfas mil mypay See At-Risk Rules , earlier. Mypay dfas mil mypay Also see Publication 925. Mypay dfas mil mypay Form 8582, Passive Activity Loss Limitations. Mypay dfas mil mypay See Passive Activity Limits , earlier. Mypay dfas mil mypay Page 2 of Schedule E is used to report income or loss from partnerships, S corporations, estates, trusts, and real estate mortgage investment conduits. Mypay dfas mil mypay 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. Mypay dfas mil mypay Also, include the amount from line 26 (Part I) in the “Total income or (loss)” on line 41 (Part V). Mypay dfas mil mypay Worksheet 9-1.

Mypay dfas mil mypay Use the percentage determined in Part I, line F, to figure the rental portions to enter on lines 2a–2c, 4a–4b, and 6a–6b of  Part II. Mypay dfas mil mypay Line 2a. Mypay dfas mil mypay Figure the mortgage interest on the dwelling unit that you could deduct on Schedule A as if you had not rented the unit. Mypay dfas mil mypay Do not include interest on a loan that did not benefit the dwelling unit. Mypay dfas mil mypay For example, do not include interest on a home equity loan used to pay off credit cards or other personal loans, buy a car, or pay college tuition. Mypay dfas mil mypay Include interest on a loan used to buy, build, or improve the dwelling unit, or to refinance such a loan. Mypay dfas mil mypay Include the rental portion of this interest in the total you enter on line 2a of the worksheet. Mypay dfas mil mypay   Figure the qualified mortgage insurance premiums on the dwelling unit that you could deduct on line 13 of Schedule A as if you had not rented the unit. Mypay dfas mil mypay See the Schedule A instructions. Mypay dfas mil mypay However, figure your adjusted gross income (Form 1040, line 38) without your rental income and expenses from the dwelling unit. Mypay dfas mil mypay See Line 4b to deduct the part of the qualified mortgage insurance premiums not allowed because of the adjusted gross income limit. Mypay dfas mil mypay Include the rental portion of the amount from Schedule A, line 13, in the total you enter on line 2a of the worksheet. Mypay dfas mil mypay   Note. Mypay dfas mil mypay Do not file this Schedule A or use it to figure the amount to deduct on line 13 of that schedule. Mypay dfas mil mypay Instead, figure the personal portion on a separate Schedule A. Mypay dfas mil mypay If you have deducted mortgage interest or qualified mortgage insurance premiums on the dwelling unit on other forms, such as Schedule C or F, remember to reduce your Schedule A deduction by that amount. Mypay dfas mil mypay           Line 2c. Mypay dfas mil mypay Figure the casualty and theft losses related to the dwelling unit that you could deduct on Schedule A as if you had not rented the dwelling unit. Mypay dfas mil mypay To do this, complete Section A of Form 4684, Casualties and Thefts, treating the losses as personal losses. Mypay dfas mil mypay If any of the loss is due to a federally declared disaster, see the Instructions for Form 4684. Mypay dfas mil mypay On Form 4684, line 17, enter 10% of your adjusted gross income figured without your rental income and expenses from the dwelling unit. Mypay dfas mil mypay Enter the rental portion of the result from Form 4684, line 18, on line 2c of this worksheet. Mypay dfas mil mypay   Note. Mypay dfas mil mypay Do not file this Form 4684 or use it to figure your personal losses on Schedule A. Mypay dfas mil mypay Instead, figure the personal portion on a separate Form 4684. Mypay dfas mil mypay           Line 2d. Mypay dfas mil mypay Enter the total of your rental expenses that are directly related only to the rental activity. Mypay dfas mil mypay These include interest on loans used for rental activities other than to buy, build, or improve the dwelling unit. Mypay dfas mil mypay Also include rental agency fees, advertising, office supplies, and depreciation on office equipment used in your rental activity. Mypay dfas mil mypay           Line 2e. Mypay dfas mil mypay You can deduct the amounts on lines 2a, 2b, 2c, and 2d as rental expenses on Schedule E even if your rental expenses are more than your rental income. Mypay dfas mil mypay Enter the amounts on lines 2a, 2b, 2c, and 2d on the appropriate lines of Schedule E. Mypay dfas mil mypay           Line 4b. Mypay dfas mil mypay On line 2a, you entered the rental portion of the mortgage interest and qualified mortgage insurance premiums you could deduct on Schedule A if you had not rented the dwelling unit. Mypay dfas mil mypay If you had additional mortgage interest and qualified mortgage insurance premiums that would not be deductible on Schedule A because of limits imposed on them, enter on line 4b of this worksheet the rental portion of those excess amounts. Mypay dfas mil mypay Do not include interest on a loan that did not benefit the dwelling unit (as explained in the line 2a instructions). Mypay dfas mil mypay           Line 4e. Mypay dfas mil mypay You can deduct the amounts on lines 4a, 4b, and 4c as rental expenses on Schedule E only to the extent they are not more than the amount on line 4e.
