Subject:  Another Rental Property Question Date:  4/14/2008  2:05 AM
Author:  ibarz Number:  100292 of 127513

I wanted to just clarify

1) The mortgage interests that I pay for the rental property is only calculated against my rental property income and cannot help lower my regular salary income tax?

2) Basically the same question: the property tax for the rental is regarded only as expense for the rental property?

3) If I keep piling up losses from my rental property (especially after I use the depreciation), does this all just keep adding up till I can hopefully use it in the future?

4) Kindly clarify: any rental property loss does not bring down your regular income taxes, it just carries over as a loss for future tax returns invloving the rental property?

THanks so much.
