Thanks TGBill. I'll go back and re-read all that (if I can find it again). This bill is long and it's like they take four pages to define each individual word in the one paragraph that actually means something to the likes of you and I.
When I go to enter the Deductible Rental Property Expenses for 2018 on the new release, the header show the 2017 expenses in a column headed 2016, and ask you to input 2017. . .but, they are really looking for 2018. Turbotax just needs to correct their error and update the headers. Too bad they don't have an easy way to report their simple mistakes on their website.
I agree, nothing has changed in regards to rental property expenses. If it is a for-profit rental to an unrelated party, the usual expense deductions apply (up to the At Risk limits and Passive Loss limits).
Yes. Property taxes are deducted in the year they are paid, regardless of what year is paid for. However, you can not claim or deduct any fines, penalties or late fees assessed on those delinquent taxes. They're not deductible at all, anywhere.
