Hey guys With a rental property which is in between tennants, trying to work out if some renovations completed by tradies would be R&M or if they're improvements and not deductible up front: 1. Preparing and painting walls - last painted 25 years ago. Assume this is R&M? 2. Ripping up 25 year old carpet and sanding floor boards underneath. Does this count as an improvement or can it be argued R&M as its fixing existing deterioration? Thanks!
