    Rent to own tax questioh

    Hi, For clarification reasons, is this way of phrasing your question, asking the same thing? "How does the additional money paid per month by the Tenant above the regular monthly rental income get treated for income tax purposes - as income or as a deposit?" Todd

If you check the width of the exterior walls, my guess is that they are only as 3-4 inches thick, meaning that the framing was done with 2*4s not 2*6s resulting in poor insulation and the metal studs act as a...
