Can I deduct rent?

SOLVEDby TurboTax8500Updated January 24, 2022

The IRS won't let you deduct rent for your personal residence. However, there's a deduction for home offices and expenses related to rental property you own are deductible.

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