6 Tax Breaks Landlords Get that You Don't
Part 1 of 18
If the U.S. government stops distorting the housing market, we’ll increase home ownership, economic growth, economic equality, and stable family wealth creation.
We should at least get rid of these tax breaks for landlords of single-family houses and condos.
Depreciation tax deduction.
1031 Exchange tax deduction.
Mortgage interest tax deduction.
Tax-free landlord profit-taking.
Taxes on capital gains being lower than income taxes.
Stepped-up tax basis.
How many of these landlord tax breaks did you know about? I learned about them from websites and YouTube.
There’s a minor industry online explaining all the tax breaks for landlords. Leave a comment with the landlord tax breaks I’ve missed.
