Do you own a negatively geared investment property? Your employer is required to withhold tax during the year to cover your estimated tax liability from your employment income. However, those who have a negatively geared property investment will have less taxable income than their employer estimated, due to their rental property loss offsetting their employment income. In these cases, the employee does their tax and gets a tax refund for the overpaid tax at the end of the year.
The majority of property investors look forward to tax time, gathering their information together as quickly as possible so they can get in to see their accountant and receive their tax refunds from their negatively geared properties, but what if I told you that you didn’t need to wait until tax time to get this money?
