Need 2010 taxes Shared equity financing agreement. Need 2010 taxes Donation of use of the property. Need 2010 taxes Examples. Need 2010 taxes Days used for repairs and maintenance. Need 2010 taxes Days used as a main home before or after renting. Need 2010 taxes Reporting Income and DeductionsNot used as a home. Need 2010 taxes Used as a home but rented less than 15 days. Need 2010 taxes Used as a home and rented 15 days or more. Need 2010 taxes If you have any personal use of a dwelling unit (including a vacation home) that you rent, you must divide your expenses between rental use and personal use. Need 2010 taxes In general, your rental expenses will be no more than your total expenses multiplied by a fraction; the denominator of which is the total number of days the dwelling unit is used and the numerator of which is the total number of days actually rented at a fair rental price. Need 2010 taxes Only your rental expenses may deducted on Schedule E (Form 1040). Need 2010 taxes Some of your personal expenses may be deductible if you itemize your deductions on Schedule A (Form 1040). Need 2010 taxes You must also determine if the dwelling unit is considered a home. Need 2010 taxes The amount of rental expenses that you can deduct may be limited if the dwelling unit is considered a home. Need 2010 taxes Whether a dwelling unit is considered a home depends on how many days during the year are considered to be days of personal use. Need 2010 taxes There is a special rule if you used the dwelling unit as a home and you rented it for less than 15 days during the year. Need 2010 taxes Dwelling unit. Need 2010 taxes   A dwelling unit includes a house, apartment, condominium, mobile home, boat, vacation home, or similar property. Need 2010 taxes It also includes all structures or other property belonging to the dwelling unit. Need 2010 taxes A dwelling unit has basic living accommodations, such as sleeping space, a toilet, and cooking facilities. Need 2010 taxes   A dwelling unit does not include property (or part of the property) used solely as a hotel, motel, inn, or similar establishment. Need 2010 taxes Property is used solely as a hotel, motel, inn, or similar establishment if it is regularly available for occupancy by paying customers and is not used by an owner as a home during the year. Need 2010 taxes Example. Need 2010 taxes You rent a room in your home that is always available for short-term occupancy by paying customers. Need 2010 taxes You do not use the room yourself and you allow only paying customers to use the room. Need 2010 taxes This room is used solely as a hotel, motel, inn, or similar establishment and is not a dwelling unit. Need 2010 taxes Dividing Expenses If you use a dwelling unit for both rental and personal purposes, divide your expenses between the rental use and the personal use based on the number of days used for each purpose. Need 2010 taxes When dividing your expenses, follow these rules. Need 2010 taxes Any day that the unit is rented at a fair rental price is a day of rental use even if you used the unit for personal purposes that day. Need 2010 taxes (This rule does not apply when determining whether you used the unit as a home. Need 2010 taxes ) Any day that the unit is available for rent but not actually rented is not a day of rental use. Need 2010 taxes Fair rental price. Need 2010 taxes   A fair rental price for your property generally is the amount of rent that a person who is not related to you would be willing to pay. Need 2010 taxes The rent you charge is not a fair rental price if it is substantially less than the rents charged for other properties that are similar to your property in your area. Need 2010 taxes   Ask yourself the following questions when comparing another property with yours. Need 2010 taxes Is it used for the same purpose? Is it approximately the same size? Is it in approximately the same condition? Does it have similar furnishings? Is it in a similar location? If any of the answers are no, the properties probably are not similar. Need 2010 taxes Example. Need 2010 taxes Your beach cottage was available for rent from June 1 through August 31 (92 days). Need 2010 taxes Except for the first week in August (7 days), when you were unable to find a renter, you rented the cottage at a fair rental price during that time. Need 2010 taxes The person who rented the cottage for July allowed you to use it over the weekend (2 days) without any reduction in or refund of rent. Need 2010 taxes Your family also used the cottage during the last 2 weeks of May (14 days). Need 2010 taxes The cottage was not used at all before May 17 or after August 31. Need 2010 taxes You figure the part of the cottage expenses to treat as rental expenses as follows. Need 2010 taxes The cottage was used for rental a total of 85 days (92 − 7). Need 2010 taxes The days it was available for rent but not rented (7 days) are not days of rental use. Need 2010 taxes The July weekend (2 days) you used it is rental use because you received a fair rental price for the weekend. Need 2010 taxes You used the cottage for personal purposes for 14 days (the last 2 weeks in May). Need 2010 taxes The total use of the cottage was 99 days (14 days personal use + 85 days rental use). Need 2010 taxes Your rental expenses are 85/99 (86%) of the cottage expenses. Need 2010 taxes Note. Need 2010 taxes When determining whether you used the cottage as a home, the July weekend (2 days) you used it is considered personal use even though you received a fair rental price for the weekend. Need 2010 taxes Therefore, you had 16 days of personal use and 83 days of rental use for this purpose. Need 2010 taxes Because you used the cottage for personal purposes more than 14 days and more than 10% of the days of rental use (8 days), you used it as a home. Need 2010 taxes If you have a net loss, you may not be able to deduct all of the rental expenses. Need 2010 taxes See Dwelling Unit Used as a Home, next. Need 2010 taxes Dwelling Unit Used as a Home If you use a dwelling unit for both rental and personal purposes, the tax treatment of the rental expenses you figured earlier under Dividing Expenses and rental income depends on whether you are considered to be using the dwelling unit as a home. Need 2010 taxes You use a dwelling unit as a home during the tax year if you use it for personal purposes more than the greater of: 14 days, or 10% of the total days it is rented to others at a fair rental price. Need 2010 taxes See What is a day of personal use , later. Need 2010 taxes If a dwelling unit is used for personal purposes on a day it is rented at a fair rental price (discussed earlier), do not count that day as a day of rental use in applying (2) above. Need 2010 taxes Instead, count it as a day of personal use in applying both (1) and (2) above. Need 2010 taxes What is a day of personal use?   A day of personal use of a dwelling unit is any day that the unit is used by any of the following persons. Need 2010 taxes You or any other person who owns an interest in it, unless you rent it to another owner as his or her main home under a shared equity financing agreement (defined later). Need 2010 taxes However, see Days used as a main home before or after renting , later. Need 2010 taxes A member of your family or a member of the family of any other person who owns an interest in it, unless the family member uses the dwelling unit as his or her main home and pays a fair rental price. Need 2010 taxes Family includes only your spouse, brothers and sisters, half-brothers and half-sisters, ancestors (parents, grandparents, etc. Need 2010 taxes ), and lineal descendants (children, grandchildren, etc. Need 2010 taxes ). Need 2010 taxes Anyone under an arrangement that lets you use some other dwelling unit. Need 2010 taxes Anyone at less than a fair rental price. Need 2010 taxes Main home. Need 2010 taxes   If the other person or member of the family in (1) or (2) above has more than one home, his or her main home is ordinarily the one he or she lived in most of the time. Need 2010 taxes Shared equity financing agreement. Need 2010 taxes   This is an agreement under which two or more persons acquire undivided interests for more than 50 years in an entire dwelling unit, including the land, and one or more of the co-owners is entitled to occupy the unit as his or her main home upon payment of rent to the other co-owner or owners. Need 2010 taxes Donation of use of the property. Need 2010 taxes   You use a dwelling unit for personal purposes if: You donate the use of the unit to a charitable organization, The organization sells the use of the unit at a fund-raising event, and The “purchaser” uses the unit. Need 2010 taxes Examples. Need 2010 taxes   The following examples show how to determine if you have days of personal use. Need 2010 taxes Example 1. Need 2010 taxes You and your neighbor are co-owners of a condominium at the beach. Need 2010 taxes Last year, you rented the unit to vacationers whenever possible. Need 2010 taxes The unit was not used as a main home by anyone. Need 2010 taxes Your neighbor used the unit for 2 weeks last year; you did not use it at all. Need 2010 taxes Because your neighbor has an interest in the unit, both of you are considered to have used the unit for personal purposes during those 2 weeks. Need 2010 taxes Example 2. Need 2010 taxes You and your neighbors are co-owners of a house under a shared equity financing agreement. Need 2010 taxes Your neighbors live in the house and pay you a fair rental price. Need 2010 taxes Even though your neighbors have an interest in the house, the days your neighbors live there are not counted as days of personal use by you. Need 2010 taxes This is because your neighbors rent the house as their main home under a shared equity financing agreement. Need 2010 taxes Example 3. Need 2010 taxes You own a rental property that you rent to your son. Need 2010 taxes Your son does not own any interest in this property. Need 2010 taxes He uses it as his main home and pays you a fair rental price. Need 2010 taxes Your son's use of the property is not personal use by you because your son is using it as his main home, he owns no interest in the property, and he is paying you a fair rental price. Need 2010 taxes Example 4. Need 2010 taxes You rent your beach house to Rosa. Need 2010 taxes Rosa rents her cabin in the mountains to you. Need 2010 taxes You each pay a fair rental price. Need 2010 taxes You are using your beach house for personal purposes on the days that Rosa uses it because your house is used by Rosa under an arrangement that allows you to use her cabin. Need 2010 taxes Example 5. Need 2010 taxes You rent an apartment to your mother at less than a fair rental price. Need 2010 taxes You are using the apartment for personal purposes on the days that your mother rents it because you rent it for less than a fair rental price. Need 2010 taxes Days used for repairs and maintenance. Need 2010 taxes   Any day that you spend working substantially full time repairing and maintaining (not improving) your property is not counted as a day of personal use. Need 2010 taxes Do not count such a day as a day of personal use even if family members use the property for recreational purposes on the same day. Need 2010 taxes Example. Need 2010 taxes Corey owns a cabin in the mountains that he rents for most of the year. Need 2010 taxes He spends a week at the cabin with family members. Need 2010 taxes Corey works on maintenance of the cabin 3 or 4 hours each day during the week and spends the rest of the time fishing, hiking, and relaxing. Need 2010 taxes Corey's family members, however, work substantially full time on the cabin each day during the week. Need 2010 taxes The main purpose of being at the cabin that week is to do maintenance work. Need 2010 taxes Therefore, the use of the cabin during the week by Corey and his family will not be considered personal use by Corey. Need 2010 taxes Days used as a main home before or after renting. Need 2010 taxes   For purposes of determining whether a dwelling unit was used as a home, you may not have to count days you used the property as your main home before or after renting it or offering it for rent as days of personal use. Need 2010 taxes Do not count them as days of personal use if: You rented or tried to rent the property for 12 or more consecutive months. Need 2010 taxes You rented or tried to rent the property for a period of less than 12 consecutive months and the period ended because you sold or exchanged the property. Need 2010 taxes However, this special rule does not apply when dividing expenses between rental and personal use. Need 2010 taxes See Property Changed to Rental Use in chapter 4. Need 2010 taxes Example 1. Need 2010 taxes On February 29, 2012, you moved out of the house you had lived in for 6 years because you accepted a job in another town. Need 2010 taxes You rented your house at a fair rental price from March 15, 2012, to May 14, 2013 (14 months). Need 2010 taxes On June 1, 2013, you moved back into your old house. Need 2010 taxes The days you used the house as your main home from January 1 to February 29, 2012, and from June 1 to December 31, 2013, are not counted as days of personal use. Need 2010 taxes Therefore, you would use the rules in chapter 1 when figuring your rental income and expenses. Need 2010 taxes Example 2. Need 2010 taxes On January 31, you moved out of the condominium where you had lived for 3 years. Need 2010 taxes You offered it for rent at a fair rental price beginning on February 1. Need 2010 taxes You were unable to rent it until April. Need 2010 taxes On September 15, you sold the condominium. Need 2010 taxes The days you used the condominium as your main home from January 1 to January 31 are not counted as days of personal use when determining whether you used it as a home. Need 2010 taxes Examples. Need 2010 taxes   The following examples show how to determine whether you used your rental property as a home. Need 2010 taxes Example 1. Need 2010 taxes You converted the basement of your home into an apartment with a bedroom, a bathroom, and a small kitchen. Need 2010 taxes You rented the basement apartment at a fair rental price to college students during the regular school year. Need 2010 taxes You rented to them on a 9-month lease (273 days). Need 2010 taxes You figured 10% of the total days rented to others at a fair rental price is 27 days. Need 2010 taxes During June (30 days), your brothers stayed with you and lived in the basement apartment rent free. Need 2010 taxes Your basement apartment was used as a home because you used it for personal purposes for 30 days. Need 2010 taxes Rent-free use by your brothers is considered personal use. Need 2010 taxes Your personal use (30 days) is more than the greater of 14 days or 10% of the total days it was rented (27 days). Need 2010 taxes Example 2. Need 2010 taxes You rented the guest bedroom in your home at a fair rental price during the local college's homecoming, commencement, and football weekends (a total of 27 days). Need 2010 taxes Your sister-in-law stayed in the room, rent free, for the last 3 weeks (21 days) in July. Need 2010 taxes You figured 10% of the total days rented to others at a fair rental price is 3 days. Need 2010 taxes The room was used as a home because you used it for personal purposes for 21 days. Need 2010 taxes That is more than the greater of 14 days or 10% of the 27 days it was rented (3 days). Need 2010 taxes Example 3. Need 2010 taxes You own a condominium apartment in a resort area. Need 2010 taxes You rented it at a fair rental price for a total of 170 days during the year. Need 2010 taxes For 12 of these days, the tenant was not able to use the apartment and allowed you to use it even though you did not refund any of the rent. Need 2010 taxes Your family actually used the apartment for 10 of those days. Need 2010 taxes Therefore, the apartment is treated as having been rented for 160 (170 – 10) days. Need 2010 taxes You figured 10% of the total days rented to others at a fair rental price is 16 days. Need 2010 taxes Your family also used the apartment for 7 other days during the year. Need 2010 taxes You used the apartment as a home because you used it for personal purposes for 17 days. Need 2010 taxes That is more than the greater of 14 days or 10% of the 160 days it was rented (16 days). Need 2010 taxes Minimal rental use. Need 2010 taxes   If you use the dwelling unit as a home and you rent it less than 15 days during the year, that period is not treated as rental activity. Need 2010 taxes See Used as a home but rented less than 15 days, later, for more information. Need 2010 taxes Limit on deductions. Need 2010 taxes   Renting a dwelling unit that is considered a home is not a passive activity. Need 2010 taxes Instead, if your rental expenses are more than your rental income, some or all of the excess expenses cannot be used to offset income from other sources. Need 2010 taxes The excess expenses that cannot be used to offset income from other sources are carried forward to the next year and treated as rental expenses for the same property. Need 2010 taxes Any expenses carried forward to the next year will be subject to any limits that apply for that year. Need 2010 taxes This limitation will apply to expenses carried forward to another year even if you do not use the property as your home for that subsequent year. Need 2010 taxes   To figure your deductible rental expenses for this year and any carryover to next year, use Worksheet 5–1. Need 2010 taxes Reporting Income and Deductions Property not used for personal purposes. Need 2010 taxes   If you do not use a dwelling unit for personal purposes, see chapter 3 for how to report your rental income and expenses. Need 2010 taxes Property used for personal purposes. Need 2010 taxes   If you do use a dwelling unit for personal purposes, then how you report your rental income and expenses depends on whether you used the dwelling unit as a home. Need 2010 taxes Not used as a home. Need 2010 taxes   If you use a dwelling unit for personal purposes, but not as a home, report all the rental income in your income. Need 2010 taxes Since you used the dwelling unit for personal purposes, you must divide your expenses between the rental use and the personal use as described earlier in this chapter under Dividing Expenses . Need 2010 taxes The expenses for personal use are not deductible as rental expenses. Need 2010 taxes   Your deductible rental expenses can be more than your gross rental income; however, see Limits on Rental Losses in chapter 3. Need 2010 taxes Used as a home but rented less than 15 days. Need 2010 taxes   If you use a dwelling unit as a home and you rent it less than 15 days during the year, its primary function is not considered to be rental and it should not be reported on Schedule E (Form 1040). Need 2010 taxes You are not required to report the rental income and rental expenses from this activity. Need 2010 taxes The expenses, including qualified mortgage interest, property taxes, and any qualified casualty loss will be reported as normally allowed on Schedule A (Form 1040). Need 2010 taxes See the Instructions for Schedule A (Form 1040) for more information on deducting these expenses. Need 2010 taxes Used as a home and rented 15 days or more. Need 2010 taxes   If you use a dwelling unit as a home and rent it 15 days or more during the year, include all your rental income in your income. Need 2010 taxes Since you used the dwelling unit for personal purposes, you must divide your expenses between the rental use and the personal use as described earlier in this chapter under Dividing Expenses . Need 2010 taxes The expenses for personal use are not deductible as rental expenses. Need 2010 taxes   If you had a net profit from renting the dwelling unit for the year (that is, if your rental income is more than the total of your rental expenses, including depreciation), deduct all of your rental expenses. Need 2010 taxes You do not need to use Worksheet 5-1. Need 2010 taxes   However, if you had a net loss from renting the dwelling unit for the year, your deduction for certain rental expenses is limited. Need 2010 taxes To figure your deductible rental expenses and any carryover to next year, use Worksheet 5–1. Need 2010 taxes Worksheet 5-1. Need 2010 taxes Worksheet for Figuring Rental Deductions for a Dwelling Unit Used as a Home Use this worksheet only if you answer “yes” to all of the following questions. Need 2010 taxes Did you use the dwelling unit as a home this year? (See Dwelling Unit Used as a Home .

Need 2010 taxes Figure the mortgage interest on the dwelling unit that you could deduct on Schedule A as if you had not rented the unit. Need 2010 taxes Do not include interest on a loan that did not benefit the dwelling unit. Need 2010 taxes For example, do not include interest on a home equity loan used to pay off credit cards or other personal loans, buy a car, or pay college tuition. Need 2010 taxes Include interest on a loan used to buy, build, or improve the dwelling unit, or to refinance such a loan. Need 2010 taxes Include the rental portion of this interest in the total you enter on line 2a of the worksheet. Need 2010 taxes   Figure the qualified mortgage insurance premiums on the dwelling unit that you could deduct on line 13 of Schedule A as if you had not rented the unit. Need 2010 taxes See the Schedule A instructions. Need 2010 taxes However, figure your adjusted gross income (Form 1040, line 38) without your rental income and expenses from the dwelling unit. Need 2010 taxes See Line 4b to deduct the part of the qualified mortgage insurance premiums not allowed because of the adjusted gross income limit. Need 2010 taxes Include the rental portion of the amount from Schedule A, line 13, in the total you enter on line 2a of the worksheet. Need 2010 taxes   Note. Need 2010 taxes Do not file this Schedule A or use it to figure the amount to deduct on line 13 of that schedule. Need 2010 taxes Instead, figure the personal portion on a separate Schedule A. Need 2010 taxes If you have deducted mortgage interest or qualified mortgage insurance premiums on the dwelling unit on other forms, such as Schedule C or F, remember to reduce your Schedule A deduction by that amount. Need 2010 taxes           Line 2c. Need 2010 taxes Figure the casualty and theft losses related to the dwelling unit that you could deduct on Schedule A as if you had not rented the dwelling unit. Need 2010 taxes To do this, complete Section A of Form 4684, Casualties and Thefts, treating the losses as personal losses. Need 2010 taxes If any of the loss is due to a federally declared disaster, see the Instructions for Form 4684. Need 2010 taxes On Form 4684, line 17, enter 10% of your adjusted gross income figured without your rental income and expenses from the dwelling unit. Need 2010 taxes Enter the rental portion of the result from Form 4684, line 18, on line 2c of this worksheet. Need 2010 taxes   Note. Need 2010 taxes Do not file this Form 4684 or use it to figure your personal losses on Schedule A. Need 2010 taxes Instead, figure the personal portion on a separate Form 4684.
