Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.

It is not the income tax, it is the property tax. Rental income is often used to determine value of your property for tax assessment. If you rent it for less than fair market value, the assessor will increase your rental income to the fair market value to determine value of your house and what will be your property tax.
