What are my tax obligations as a landlord?

SEPTEMBER 14, 2018

If you own a rental property, or are thinking of buying one, there can be plenty of confusion in regards to record-keeping and reporting.

The ATO has created a series of short videos which are designed to help both experienced and new landlords navigate their tax and record keeping obligations across the property investor landscape.

The topics covered by the videos will educate landlords on a wealth of tax topics including:

  • Claiming deductions for vacant land
  • Claiming depreciating assets
  • Claiming interest expenses
  • Co-owners of a rental property
  • Getting repairs and capital works right
  • When you can claim a deduction for rental expenses

Check out the video series on the ATO website , or get more tips and tools for your investment property journey from your local Raine & Horne Property Management team or at ato.gov.au/taxsmartinvesting
