I wanted to bring to your attention a rarely used strategy: you can get tax free income for renting your home!
Rent Your Home for 14 Days or Less.
You can cash in on this awesome tax exemption in 2018 by renting your house for two weeks or less. Renting your house for less than 15 days keeps you from having to pay taxes on a single cent of income you got from your short-term rental(s).
According to the IRS, "There's a special rule if you use a dwelling unit as a residence and rent it for fewer than 15 days. In this case, don't report any of the rental income and don't deduct any expenses as rental expenses."
This means, no matter how much money you make from these 14 days of renting, you don't even have to report the income to the IRS.
