Senior Citizen

My mom is 82 years old and widowed. She gets Social Security, bank interest (1% woo hoo), and in June will be getting monthly rental income in a house she owns.

Her concern is filing taxes. My online research shows SS isn't taxable but the rest is. Over $11,850 in income means she must file taxes.

Am I correct? If so, can she take deductions (if she has to file ) for the electrician, plumber and other workmen required to open the apartment? No one has rented in nine years. I used to live there but suffered an illness that left me semi-paralyzed in a nursing. She couldn't rent my place for personal reasons but the new tenants are my BFF from Texas so she's comfortable renting to them

She's still very intelligent and thinks clearly. She just doesn't want to dig a hole for herself by not filing.

Thank you in advance.

Edit is broken with server error. I'm in a nursing HOME. Forgot that word.
