Can I deduct rent?

SOLVEDby TurboTax8789Updated December 09, 2023

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.
