I recently had a guest stay only 2 of their 7 day stay. I am curious if anyone knows if the days the guests were no longer on site still counts as days rented according to the IRS/tax code? They left for their own personal reason and did not receive a refund.
The reason I ask is, I would be under the 14 day rule if they do not and over if they do, so it can affect my taxes a fair amount.
We do not rent our space out very frequently.
I appreciate any responses as I am new here.
Yes this is what I am referring to. If you rent a space for 14 days or less, that is also used for personal use, (14 day rule) the amount earned (no matter how high) does not need to be reported, which is why I have an interest. Sounds like I need to ask my tax guy.
