Do I include labour cost paid to family member in the total amount put in repair and maintenance cost?

If you pay someone, whether they are related or not, to provide a service for you in your Business or Rental operation, as long as you issue them a receipt for their services and they claim this income on their own tax return, you can claim the deduction. 

However, you cannot deduct the value of your own services or labour.
