Tax Tips for Investment Property Owners
End of Financial Year Maintenance and Repairs
For investment property owners and mangers the end financial year is the perfect time to ensure that properties are in the best condition while maximising the profitability of their investment. Undertaking necessary repairs and maintenance can increase legitimate tax deductions for an investment property and at the same time ensure that value is retained or even increased. With elections out of the way, confidence and certainty are returning to the rental property market and many investors are taking advantage of deductions available to to them by carrying out routine maintenance or repairs to their properties.
What can be claimed
Tax deductible expenses on investment properties fall into a number of categories including borrowing, management, and maintenance costs.
The cost of ongoing maintenance as well as periodic and even unforeseen repairs are all legitimate and deductible expenses for property owners. Such expenses include:
- Cleaning between tenancies
- Yard maintenance, tree lopping and law mowing
- Annual pest control and termite inspections
- Resealing or re-waterproofing wet areas such as bathrooms or laundries
- Periodic repainting.
Property improvements may also be tax deductible expenses or alternatively be capital improvements which are the depreciable over time. These may include such items as:
- Re-modeling a kitchen
- Extending the footprint of the property
- Renovating a bathroom or ensuite.
