Real Estate Advisor 'By ALLEN DAMEROW Broker Question: I've heard people talk about the tax icentives of property nership. Can you tell me exactly what these in- centives are? gnswer: Uncle Sam encourages real estate ownership by proving tax deductions for property owners. For the homeowner, these generally consist of deductions for property taxes and mortgage in- terest. Investors benefit by additional write-offs which include deductions for depreciation and certain types of repairs to the plmper.ty. i- -'/j)ue to the depreciation w'Tite-off, deductions can be made without any actual apital outlay, and his "paper loss" Can be used to shelter ordinary income as from salary, wages, and income from in- vtments. The specific allowable deductions vary with the property as well as either the financial status of the property owner. While a real estate agent is not in the tax ad'ice business, a frank discussion with your real estate agent will allow. him to prepare an In" vestment Analysis to' discuss with your tax ommltant. 4-H Happenings By ELSIE ROSE DOMENICHELLI The November 19 meeting of the Cloverdale 4-H Club was called to order by president Diane Ramos.
