Airbnb - Tax and Expense question
So I just started up an AIRBNB at a ski resort condo I own. Had my 1st renters Dec 29th. I used it only has personal use up to that point but going to make it avail to airbnb for all of 2020. I am going to go see an accountant but curious if anyone here knows the answer to this. I spent a lot of cash to get it ready to rent in 2019. Can I claim what I spent to get it ready in 2019 even if I did not make revenue in 2019. The money I spent was to get it ready to rent in 2020 accept for the few days at the end of Dec. I did not get paid for that from airbnb until Jan as the period was Dec 29 to Jan 3rd.
