Is my house a rental even if I don't charge rent?

September 10, 2003

From:  Mike
Date:  Fri, 01 Aug 2003

I own a house in California. I have been renting it out since 1987, but for the last 3 years I have let my daughter and grandson live in it at no cost because of a hardship they are going through. My question is whether it is still considered a rental home even though I am not charging them for rend and she is my daughter.

Hello Mike,

Probably not.

Good luck!
