Thread: Tax on rental income

    Tax on rental income

    Chatting to a friend this evening and she said that if a person lets a room, and the rent is less than 80 per week then this income is tax free. A concession made to encourage unused rooms to be let. Does anyone know if this is correct?

    Yes, absolutely correct, John, and the allowance has increased to 7500 per year.

    So, is it correct then that if one has taken in a lodger and the total rental income per annum is less than 7,500.00, then one doesn't need to even mention it on one's tax return?
