January 6 news: “landlord, my rent will be deducted by a tax.” “If you deduct a tax, I’ll raise the rent.”
In 2019, the implementation of the new tax law, housing rent and other six expenditures can be deducted a tax, which is a good thing for
residents to reduce the burden, but who expected, but it triggered the landlord, tenants
and intermediaries game, but also caused the fear of raising the rent.

The landlord threatened to raise the rent by deducting a tax from the rent
According to the new rules, Zhang who rents a house in Beijing can deduct 1500 yuan before tax. After
issuing a special tax deduction information form, she is ready to fill in the form when she thinks that her monthly income can increase a little.
According to the information form, in order to enjoy the special additional deduction of housing rent, it is necessary to fill in the information
of the main working city, the location address of the rental housing, the name of the lessor and the type and number of identity documents, or
the name of the lessor’s unit and the taxpayer identification number (social unified credit code), the start and end time of the lease, etc.
But when the landlord knew the news, he poured cold water on Xiao Zhang. “If you declare rent deduction
and the tax bureau asks me to collect tax, I will add the money to the rent. At present, the rent is a tax-free price.”
Xiao Zhang’s experience is not an example. Many netizens
reflected in the social media that they asked the landlord for their identity information,
but they were refused. The landlord advised the tenant not to declare a tax and rent deduction on the
grounds that the information might be taxed after submission. Even some landlords said that if deduction was made, the tenant would return the house.
On the one hand, a tax may deduct tens of yuan, on the other hand, the rent may rise hundreds of yuan.
On the other hand, many tenants are forced to choose not to declare rent deduction, so they can not enjoy the personal tax reductions bonus issued by the state.
