Hi All, this is my first post in here, I have been reading some excellent posts the whole morning while I am in a deadly bored training... Here is my situation. 1. I brought my house in last July and I lived there since then. 2. This is a three bed-room house, and I want to rent two of them. My question is can I claim loan interest and other related cost as tax deductible ? because I still live here, so it is still my PPR, only part of it is rented out. so do I need to tell anyone I am doing that? I tried to search ATO webpage, but didn't find anything. Many thanks in advance.
