That's in theory. Only when you "SPENT" some money on maintenance you may get tax return. But a lot of house onwers who rent rooms out may do nothing in the maintenance.

Also the rents are added on top of the owner's annual income. The marginal tax rate is quite high (43%). Under such a high marginal tax rate no body cares that part of the small amount of tax return (if any).

Before you move in to a house (public apartment buldings managed by professional properties managment companies normally do not have this kind of problem.), make sure if the owner is willing to give you the receipt or not.

Sometimes we rent a room or a floor of a house from a private owner of the house is just because the rents are low compared with an apartment suite.

If one have ever filed a tax return form you posiblly would notice that the reduced tax from the land property tax or the rental cost is minimum (only 20% of the rents may be counted as land property tax, then may further increase your personal tax credit)

If one is doing low income job that gives you an income around personal income tax credit ($74xx/year) the rents receipt may help you to increase your tax credit amount.

If you already are earning a not-too-bad salary, say over $30000/year, then this receipt may never help you at all.

回到话题: 我的房东拒收支票,付现金还不给收据。见我坚持索取收据就宣布要驱逐我,理由是要收回房间自用(我才住了一个月!),也不再来收下月的房租。我知道这是一个驱逐房客的合法理由。但我怎么证明真正的理由?向TRIBUNAL投诉有用吗?
