No, you don't have to report rental property revenue if your husband is reporting the entire amount on his return (unless you live in a Community Property State). 

 

However, if your husband itemizes deductions, you must also itemize.

Hello

 

Thank you very much for your answer !

I am living in Calfornia which is a Community Property State.

 

But let me give you more details on my situation :

- I am US resident but French citizen (my assignment in the US is temporary)

- I bought the appartment in France before arriving in the US

- I already declare all my rental income for my tax return in France (actually it is not income it is only loss because of mortgage interests exceeding the incomes => I don't pay tax)

 

Does it make any difference ? What do you recommand ?

Thank you so much for your help.

Best

David

Since you live in a Community Property State, you should split the Rental Income (or Loss) on your returns.

 

If you are a Resident Alien, you file US taxes as a citizen, so that does not affect your situation.
