Brighter Landlording

Everything you need to know about tax and your rental property

by Kate Watt, Marketing Manager 7 July 2022

So it’s tax time. No one loves paying tax and very few people would say they love the tax office.

But let’s give credit where credit is due. The ATO website can sometimes provide some very useful information, especially if you’re a first time property investor.

If you’re thinking about buying an investment property, or you already have one – or more – check out the ATO’s rental property video series which breaks down chunky tax topics into bit size bits of useful information.

It answers questions like, what records you need to keep when you buy or sell a property, how to distinguish between repairs and renovations for tax purposes, and tax considerations if you co-own a property.

There’s also useful information to be found if you’re selling a rental property that you once lived in yourself.
