Your Investment Property – Tax Pitfalls

The Australian Taxation Office (ATO) has closely monitored rental properties for several years due to the substantial tax deductions they often involve and the high potential for mistakes.

Every year, the ATO reaches out to thousands of taxpayers with rental properties to verify and justify the details declared in their tax returns. It’s crucial to ensure that your claims are justifiable. Frequent errors encompass lacking a depreciation schedule prepared by a quantity surveyor, failing to account for personal use of the property, incorrectly deducting travel expenses, and misclassifying capital expenditures as repairs.
