Negative Gearing - Investment Property Tax Returns - from $59.95*
Negative gearing is when the annual cost of your investment is more than your return. Basically, when the cost of maintaining your property and paying the interest on your loan is more than the rental income you get from it, you are negatively geared. These losses can be claimed back on your tax return on investment property. For example, if you owned a rental property generating $25,000 in rent each year, but the costs of holding the property (including mortgage interest) came to $30,000 then your taxable loss would be $5000. You can use the taxable loss of $5000 to reduce the tax payable on your salary or income taxes.
This way you'll pay less tax, but don't be mistaken, it is still a loss - just a smaller one – that hopefully will be more than made up for by the property's increasing value. You probably won't see a return on your investment until you sell the property, and only if it's for a much better price than you originally bought it for. It's also important to note that where your investment property does make a positive return, called ‘positive gearing' where your income rental earns more than it costs to own the property, that profit is taxable.
Landlords of positively geared properties need to set aside funds to cover the tax they will pay on their investment each year or the income from rent. As this would be added on top of your income from your job.
