Your Home Becomes An Investment Property – Case Study
Jane’s only major asset is her 2-bedroom apartment worth $800K. Jane leaves everything to her only child, Mary. Mary has a job paying $120K p.a. and 2 children who are still in school. Mary rents a 3-bedroom townhouse and can’t yet afford to buy her own home. Once Jane passes away, Mary rents out Jane’s old apartment as an investment property, earning $40K p.a. in rental income. Mary holds the apartment for 10 years and then sells it for $1M, making a $200K capital gain.

TOTAL TAX SAVED = $156,650


* * * *
With a smarter will, Mary ‘streams’ the additional $40K p.a. in rental income equally between her 2 children to take advantage of their lower tax rates, saving $14,116 in tax per year, every year. In the final year, Mary can similarly ‘stream’ the additional $140K income (ie, $40K rent + $100K capital gain after the 50% CGT discount) equally between the kids, saving $29,606 in unnecessary tax.
