We can normally write off property taxes right? Whether we were living in the house or not?Yes.The house has primarily been for personal use. We did rent it out to friends from August 2003 - August 2004, during which time we were living out of state. We never did any depreciation of it as a rental property, and did not report any rental income in 2003, but we did report $7000 on our 2004 tax return in the miscellaneous section, and wrote "house sitter expense sharing." Does that make any difference? Based on that can we say it was an investment property? No, based on that you can say you need to file amended 2003 and 2004 returns. You've messed this up by not doing things right the first time. Go hire someone to straighten it out and file the experience under "Lessons Learned."Phil
