If you own an investment property, it’s important to know what you can and can’t claim during tax time. For most investors, the tax benefits are one of the primary reasons they decided to invest in Real Estate.

Although some of you may decide to do your own tax returns, I always recommend that you speak to an accountant to make sure you’re aware of everything you should be claiming.

  1. Council Rates
  2. Water charges
  3. Interest on loan(s)
  4. Insurance
