Are there any tax deductions available for homeowners association dues?

Sioux Falls, SD |

Our new house is part of an HOA, and I'm just wondering if there are any kind of tax deductions available for this?

The IRS provides that you cannot deduct homeowners association assessments because the homeowners association imposes them, not the State.

You cannot deduct HOA dues for your personal residence. However, you can deduct it if the real estate is rented or used for business purposes. If this is the case, consult with a good tax preparer (i.e. a CPA).

Good luck.

How about HOA dues on vacant lots. I'm holding the vacant lots as an investment?

As the previous attorneys mentioned, these are personal in nature and are not taxes. If it were a rental, they could be business expenses.
