How do I enter my rental income and expenses in TurboTax?

Rental income is income you earn from renting a property that you own or have use of. You can own the property by yourself or with someone else. Rental income includes income from renting:

  • houses
  • apartments
  • rooms
  • space in an office building
  • other real or movable property

For more information, visit the Claiming Rental Income page.


  • Enter only deductible expenses that you were not reimbursed for and have not deducted elsewhere.
  • If you rent out a part of the building that you live in, you can claim only the portion of your expenses that relate to the rented part of the building.
  1. Select Find (or the magnifying glass icon) from the TurboTax menu. Type T5013.
  2. Select T5013 Partnership Income from the list and then select Go.

You need to prepare a separate rental statement for each rental property you have. Canadian and/or foreign rental income and expenses are reported in the same section of TurboTax.

  1. Select Find (or the magnifying glass icon) from the TurboTax menu.
  2. Type Rental Properties and then select Go.
  • Enter your percentage of ownership in the Identification section and complete the Details of other co-owners and partners section, including the co-owners/partners percentage of ownership.
  • Enter the total gross income; do not enter just your portion/share
