Everything you need to know about Tax Depreciation.

Landlords are you aware of the tax benefits that are associated with your investment property?
“As a building gets older and items within it wear out, they depreciate in value. The ATO allows property investors to claim a rental & investment property depreciation deduction related to the building and plant and equipment items contained within it. It can be claimed by any owner of an income producing property. This deduction essentially reduces the investment property owner's taxable income – they pay less tax!” (BMT Tax Depreciation, 2012)
