    Insurance payout as income? 9th Apr 18 at 6:35 PM
    I'm completing my property rental tax return.
    Does an insurance payout I received last year count as income and is therefore taxable?

    Did the property suffer damage and you claimed on the insurance? If so, no.

    Yes the property suffered damage and I claimed on the insurance.
    If not claiming the insurance payment as income I assume I don't claim the repair costs as an expense.

    They're an expense to the extent that they exceed the insurance proceeds.
