Customer Question
Hi, I had to...

Hi, I had to help my son, Miguel Arroyo Jr., with his house mortgage pmts. or he might have gone through foreclosure. His credit scores were very low and did not cualify for a refinance loan. I'm on the property's Title Deed and I refinanced a loan on his prop (Townhouse) which is now in my name. I show 2 houses in my name now, his former house where he and his family continue to live and my house where my wife and I live. Neither house is an actual "Rental" and my son makes the mortgage pmts. on the Refi. loan, while I make the mortage pmts. on my home. I understand that the IRS will classify my 2nd home as a rental and it absolutely is not. Please advise is there a hardship waiver or dispensation status I can apply for so that my taxes do not increase?

Accountant's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Accountant should know?

I am retired and my wife is totally disabled and our day to day lives are difficult enough. Thank you for offering help, Miguel Arroyo Sr.

You might have a rental loss if you report it on Schedule E. You could create a written rental agreement with your son and charge him fair market value rent. There really is no hardship for taxes in this area with the IRS.
