Hello,

Last year I bought my first rental property. It is a condo and my tenants are long-term. I have two bills that are paid annually: rental property insurance and the condo association fees. While those two bills are paid annually, they do not directly coincide with the tax year....so my question is...can I deduct the full amount this calendar year or should I prorate the deduction for just this year?

Example:

Check 1008 of $360 paid my insurance premium running from June 18 to June 19....Do I deduct all $360 this tax year (2018)?

Thanks!

depends on whether you are cash basis or accrual basis business.

cash basis, yes.

accrual basis the proper thing to do would be to record a prepaid insurance account for the 2019 portion.
