Rental Deductions

First, if you make too much money (adjusted gross income over $100,000 for married taxpayers), then your rental losses are slowly capped from $25,000 at $100,000 to $0 at $150,000. In other words, if your rental loses $20,000 but your income is $150,000, your rental loss deduction is zippo.

S Corp for Rental Property

Let’s say you do NOT materially participate in the running of the S-Corp. Without the rental, you would be taxed on $50,000. Without the S-Corp you would only be able to deduct $25,000 worth of passive losses. But with both the rental and the S-Corp, you shelter $50,000 of your K-1 with your rental losses, and pay $0 tax.

Section 199A Rental Property Deduction

Self-rentals pose an interesting situation as we alluded to in a previous section. For example, you own some equipment personally and lease it back to your business. Provided the arrangement is at market rates, we believe this still qualifies for the Section 199A deduction as a rental business for two reasons.

Rental Property Tax Deductions

What Is Considered Rental Income

Expenses paid by a tenant – If your tenant pays any of your expenses, those payments are rental income. You in turn can deduct these expenses. For example, your tenant pays a utility invoice for $100 and deducts it from his rent of $1,500. You would still record the rent of $1,500 even though you received $1,400 as a payment, but you would

Well, it can actually help you quite a bit. If your rental property has increased in value over the years, gains on recaptured depreciation is taxed at your ordinary tax rate up to 25%, while the remaining gains are taxed at your capital gains rate (either 0% or 15% depending on your tax bracket).

Paying Rent, Home Office

A quick example would be where you own an office building 100% through an LLC and the business is operating as a separate LLC or S Corp. The rent must be market rent- we suggest using Zillow or a realtor to periodically update your comparables for market rent analysis. This is outside the home office world (see our chapter on self-rentals).

Reasonable Compensation S Corp

Said in a different way, if you pay yourself $50,000 when $40,000 could have been a reasonable shareholder salary, you just wasted $1,530. Even a $5,000 delta equates to $765. As such, your S Corp officer compensation needs to be reasonable, sure, but it also needs to be as low as reasonableness and not-so-common sense will allow.
