RVers need to be aware of several factors during tax season, including RV tax deductions and the need to report RV sales. Recreational vehicle sales may be required to be reported for tax purposes if they were made during the prior tax year. It is important that you understand your tax obligations before selling your RV, or complete the paperwork once it has been sold. Be sure to follow state and federal tax laws by talking to your IRS about RV tax reporting requirements.
Is the sales tax deductable on my recreational vehicle?
You may need to report the sale of your RV on your tax return. If you sell your RV for a profit and get more from the sale than you paid for it, the IRS requires you to report the RV income. Long-term capital gain is usually reported on a capital gains tax return.
If you bought your RV for more than what you’re selling it for, you don’t have to report it to the IRS. Even though the RV was sold for a profit, the IRS did not consider it income or any other type of income. In the event that you rent your RV for part of the year or full time, you will have to declare income taxes. Your taxes may allow you to deduct a portion of your investment in your RV rental business, based on the expenses associated with renting your RV. To attract more renters, you may be able to deduct repairs that enhance the decor and value of your RV. A tax professional can help you determine your RV income tax responsibilities and what deductions you are eligible for.
