Can I claim rental expenses?

In general, if you receive income from the rental of a dwelling unit, such as a house, apartment, or duplex, you can deduct certain expenses.

Besides knowing which expenses may be deductible, it’s important to understand potential limitations on the amounts of rental expenses that you can deduct in a tax year.

There are several types of limitations that may apply.
