    tax on rental income to pay mortgage.

    Hi, if I rented out my property and the rental income didn't cover my mortgage payments would I have to pay tax on the rental income?

    I would have thought not, since you only pay tax on any profit you make from the rental income and you do not appear to be making any profit.

      Only the interest component of the mortage though, not the repayment component (if you have a repayment mortgage rather than an interest-only one)

        We (?) pay tax on the profit (not the income): Profit after deducting approved expenses - including mortgage interest (but not mortgage repaymemts...)
