Tax break for seasonal site?

From 4/15 - 10/15 we pay a good chunk of change for a seasonal site for our 1985 Class C Minnie Winnie. My question: anyway this can be a tax write off???? 2nd home??? Any advice greatly appreciated!

Nope the IRS would consider this the same as renting an apartment or house, neither are deductible. You must OWN the property and pay taxes on it.

So then a "time share" would qualify since you own it? So would Thousand Trails qualify, etc.?

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

Get them to issue a 1098 and you would be good to go.

No, time shares do not normally qualify, you must own or be a part owner of the actual property. Your name must appear on the deed and mortgage if any. You also must pay a portion of the property taxes if any and mortgage interest to qualify for possible deductions. Every RV time share program I have seen is essentially a share purchase of a corporation that may or may not actually own any property. This does not qualify under IRS rules. If you think your time share may qualify you need to take your documentation to a TAX ATTORNEY.
