As a landlord who rents out a home, condo or townhome in Port St Lucie Florida, you are eligible for certain tax deductions. These deductions fall into three categories.
As a homeowner, even if you don't live there, you can take as an income tax deduction paid property taxes, interest on the mortgage and any points you paid at the time of closing.
Because you are renting the property, you can also deduct the annual cost of mortgage premium insurance, landlord insurance, water and trash bills and the cost of any repairs.
Finally, there is a third category which is a bit complicated and you should get the help of a professional. Some items can be deducted but only over a period of years, under the heading of depreciating. Items falling into this category include the price of the house, closing fees, and long term improvements such as a new furnace.
