Mrs Voigtstr wants to know the tax pro's and cons of putting the villa unit we are living in, in both names. (the villa unit will become a rental when we buy our next home (early 2009)) Currently its in my name only. We both earn approximatly the same amount of cash per year. The next house (which will be our ppor) we will buy in both names (we'll do the debt recycling thing to get deductable). I was thinking that the next property could be in her name only (if serviceability allows) so that tax deductions would be about even for all properties. Is there any benefit to putting the villa unit in both names? It will cost us stamp duty to do so wont it? What other info do you need to be able to provide a more definitive answer?
