I have found alot of the small time investor's ( 2 to 3 properties) do not know. Others unless they work with an accountant think of this as a hassle. Today you have alot of people wading into the rental market. They are not always prepared, educated in the process, or do they have a good plan in place. Unfortunately it makes it harder on myself because I feel a responsibility to try and advise and teach them. It is just with a little work on their part before hand and they could easily find out the in's and out's of the rental market.
