Depreciation considerations of short-term rental ownership
In his latest piece in Accounting Today, Dave McGuire discusses the recent demand for short-term rentals and how investors are increasingly attracted to these properties to generate passive income. Moving forward, investors and their CPAs need to be aware of the depreciation rules that apply to the short-term rental market.
