Renting a room in my home


G

G Burton

I would like to rent a room in my home.

1) Since we would have to share some facilities (kitchen
bathroom, etc.), what would we do about the "exclusive use"
rule?

2) Suppose I deduct home depreciation, and I later wind up
selling the home and upgrading to a larger home. I would
probably continue to rent out a room in the larger home.
What consequences (if any) would there be to taking the
depreciation?
