In most cases, the income you earn from renting out your gear is taxable. Here are some things to keep in mind:
Keep Track of Your Earnings: If your rental earnings exceed a certain amount in a calendar year, you'll receive a Form 1099 from our trusty merchant account provider, Stripe. This form will help you with your tax reporting.
Deductible Expenses: The good news is that you may be eligible for deductions against this income. Some expenses, like vehicle-related costs and depreciation, could lower your taxable income. That means keeping more money in your pocket!
Consult Your Tax Consultant: While we can provide some general guidance, consulting a tax consultant or professional is always a good idea. They'll help you navigate the tax treatment specific to your rental activities and ensure you get the best results.
Keep Records Handy: For smooth sailing during tax time, retain all relevant documentation related to your rental activities. This documentation will come in handy when discussing your taxes with your consultant.
Taxes can be tricky, so consulting with a tax professional is essential.
Please feel free to contact our helpful customer support team if you have any non-tax-related questions or need assistance. We're here to make things easier for you! Happy renting, and thank you for being a part of our fantastic community!
