My question I am aware that land is not tax deductable but buildings are. My payments will be around 800 with insurance and land tax. How much of that can I deduct? The entire amount ? So at the end of the year I should have 9600 I could deduct?

You can also deduct de[preciaition expenses on your biz use b/d on your return on Sch C of 1040;however when you dispose of the b/d , you must recapture the accumulated depre , sec 1250 recapture(as ordinary income taxed at 25% if your tax rate is 25% or higher) on f4797 aslongas you have gain on sale of the b/d; if no gain, no need to recapture the depre.

If the assessment is for an improvement -- for example, to build a sidewalk -- it isn't immediately deductible; instead, it is deducted over a period of years.
