Buy-to-let investors will be allowed to file property tax

Buy-to-let investors will be allowed to file property tax as expense - Charlie Weston → independent.ie/business/iris … 57475.html

Makes sense, as it is just as much as an expense as redecorating.

Karl Deeter seems to be a bit mixed up

You’d still pay property tax in this situation.

However if Rental income was 10k and MI was 5k, you add the property tax as an expense and this reduces the tax due

At least that’ll finally puts a definitive end to the debate about whether tenants should pick up the lab for their landlord’s property.

Which is ridiculous. The tenant uses the services. Now we have all rental properties effectively dodging the tax. CRAZY move.

In the UK the user pays (and pays a lot more). It should be the same case in Ireland. Yet another sop to big landlords. When your PAYE goes up don’t come crying to me then. END RANT. 5/10 due to lack of profanities.

Very slow day for journalism. From the report .
