    Interesting Sim, thanks.

    I had never heard this one before:

    "If you receive income other than rent for your rental property (for example, an insurance payout for the cost of repairs), you must include this amount as income on your tax return."

    Not that is has applied to any of my IP's so far...but good to know for future (passing audits and all that :eek:)

    Cheers, Chris
