Tax Services for Rental Property Managers

Chatham taxes for property managersIf you rent your Cape Cod vacation home for more than 14 days a year, you must report all of the rental income because the IRS now deems it as a rental property. In this case, you will then qualify to deduct some offsetting expenses. But every year, millions of property managers and landlords pay more taxes on their vacation rental income than they have to. Why? Because they fail to take advantage of all the tax deductions available for owners of rental property.
