Tax Depreciation

The ATO claims that 52% of property investors don't claim all of their available deductions! You are able to claim the tax depreciation of your investment property against your taxable income and there are two types of allowances: Depreciation of Plant and Equipment (for items within the building such as dishwashers, carpet etc), and Building Allowance (for construction costs). With tax depreciation you can reduce your taxable income by the amount on your depreciation report.

(Note that Building Allowance cannot be claimed for properties constructed prior to July 1985, but you can still claim Depreciation of Plant and Equipment on these properties)
