You should not indicate something on the receipt that is different than what is actually happening. If you do that, you could be denied the business deductions for the repair expenses on your taxes. And/or be attributed the full amount of the rent as cash received. You are doing your receipts correctly by indicating a credit for repairs and deducting that from the rent.
Has that answered your question?
