I have a rental property in another state being managed by a property management company. It required a lot of renovation when it became vacant last August after 5 years of rental. That renovation project required extensive day-to-day management, product selection/purchasing and decision making beyond what the management company could handle so I decided to take over the property management for a month and asked a retired family member for a favor to manage it for me. He had to travel out of state, rent a car and make living arrangements while there for about a month. Am I able to deduct the costs of air travel, car rental, room & board for this family member?
