Depreciation deduction

In general, the depreciation deduction is a tax benefit intended to reduce the loss of value. As a landlord, you can write off costs incurred by your investment property for tax purposes, for example, the purchase price. You can depreciate the purchase price at 2% per year — for 50 years. But also, the notary and appraisal costs or the land transfer tax can be written off.
