I was wondering for tax purposes should I designate this as a second home or as a rental. Gosh, that is really hard to answer without knowing your income, mortgage balances, itemized deductions - in other words your whole tax situation. That is something best handled by a tax or accounting professional who can analyze the whole picture rather than catch-as-catch-can advice from denizens of a message board.If I designate as a rental shoudl I charge say 100 dollars a month or still count it as zero rent.. See above...But, keep in mind that if you allow your family to use the property and don't charge "fair market rent" your deductions will be limited to your income. In general, probably not a tax benefit.Gail
