Cost Basis/Renovations on Newly Purchased Investment property.

by Nadine GV
(Las Vegas, NV )

I have recently purchased multiple SFR as investment properties. I am currently doing numerous renovations on the home, such as new texture, replacing the whole kitchen/bathroom fixtures, cabinets. New flooring throughout, paint, windows etc… I understand that for tax purposes I cannot classify these as repairs, but I need to classify them as renovations in the cost basis.

I purchased the Quicken Home& Business program and upgraded it to include rental properties. However, I cannot figure out how to tract my renovation expenses and categorize the transactions properly so it will reflect as a renovation (Cost basis) for tax reporting purposes. Right now, I have inputted all of the transactions as an expense for each corresponding property but the transactions are uncategorized.

Perchase Discounts Account in Perpetual Inv. System

by jrm
(GA)

I'd like to use the perpetual FIFO inventory system but I understand in the perpetual system you don't use the Purchases accounts. However, I'd also like to use the Purchase Discounts Available and Purchase Discounts Taken accounts so I know how well we are paying within the discount time. Is it ok to use the Purchase Discounts Available and Purchase Discounts Taken accounts when using the Perpetual Inventory System?
