    We will calculate the amount of your net rental property loss for you using the information you provide in your tax return.

    Completing your tax return

    Step 1

    Complete worksheet 1 to work out your net rental property loss.

    Any loss amounts in worksheet 1 must be shown as negative amounts (including any totals).

    At row c write your share of net rental property income or loss from the partnership tax return statement of distribution.

    At row d write the net income or loss from carrying on a rental property business which you take into account in working out the amount at Z item P8 of the Business and professional items schedule for individuals 2021. If this applies to you, then you should lodge your tax return using myTax or a registered tax agent.

    If you are unable to use myTax or a registered tax agent, contact us on 13 28 66 and we will mail you a paper tax return and Business and Professional items schedule.

    At row f write the total of the low-value pool deductions relating to your rental properties that you included at item D6.
