Can I deduct rent?

The IRS won't let you deduct rent for your personal residence. However, rental expenses for your business as well as expenses related to rental property you own are deductible.

A handful of states have some type of renter's tax credit for a personal residence or apartment. If your state is one of them, we'll asks rent-related questions when you go through your state interview.
