You would simply file Schedule E with your personal tax return to report the rental income from this apartment, as well as any rental expenses you had. Your rental expenses would include depreciation on the apartment, the cost of maintenance and repairs, the cost of any utilities you provide, a percentage of your property taxes and a percentage of any mortgage interest you pay on your property. Your net rental income after deducting those expenses is then what is subject to tax.
