The only book on tax deductions specifically for residential landlords!

If you own rental property, you should be taking advantage of the many tax write-offs available. Every Landlord's Tax Deduction Guide gives residential landlords the plain-English guide they need to save money on taxes -- without the services of a pricey accounting firm.

This book explains how to maximize your deductions without drawing the ire of the IRS. Find out how to:

  • fill out IRS Schedule E
  • take real estate tax credits
  • figure out if an expense is a repair (deductible) or an improvement (depreciable)
  • maximize your depreciation deductions
  • deduct losses arising from real estate ownership
  • keep proper tax records
  • deduct home office, travel, and casualty losses

Every Landlord's Tax Deduction Guide is comprehensive yet easy to read and provides interesting real-world examples. This edition is completely updated for 2012 returns and reflects the latest tax information and numbers.

Review: Every Landlord's Tax Deduction Guide

User Review  - Kevin - Goodreads

THIS BOOK WAS A LAUGH RIOT. LAUGH OUT LOUD FUNNY FROM BEGINNING TO END. I BUSTED A GUT LAUGHING. No it wasn't. But there was some good info in there, presented well. It should carry the subtitle: More Reasons You Should Hate Your Landlord, That Sniveling Shylock, Him And His Big Fat Tax Shelter. Read full review
