Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hi & thanks for using our service. I'll do my best to give you a complete & accurate answer. Please ask me to clarify anything you don't understand.
You didn't convert your home to rental property did you?
What were the circumstances surrounding the rental? Where did you live during the 60 days?
Is the home still your principal residence?
Hi, yes, the house is my principal property
i just traveled for work or to go back to where my parents live, Argentina
You don't have to pay back the credit because the home is still your principal residence & you resided in it for the greater number of nights during the year. A temporary rental does not convert the property to rental property.
Please remember to "ACCEPT". Feedback, if you have time & bonuses where you think they are warranted are always most appreciated. I'll be happy to answer any follow-up questions you may have.
