HOW DO I PREPARE FOR FILING A RENTAL PROPERTY RETURN?
The most important responsibility when owning a rental property, or any capital property, is to accurately and precisely record all transactions of the property. Determining the difference between a capital expenditure and a current expense is critical to the correct reporting of income and the retention of capital records. Our Rental Property Worksheet will ask you to list each item separately and we will record them in the property category. When purchasing or disposing of a property it is important that you supply us with all the legal and bank loan documents so that we can examine all possible deductions in order to reduce your tax liability.
