If you own a rental property, the IRS allows you to deduct something that is referred to as, “ordinary and necessary expenses.” These are the expenses required to manage, conserve, or maintain the property that you rent to others. You are still able to deduct these expenses even if your property is currently vacant, as long as you are actively trying to rent the space out. Pest control qualifies as an ordinary and necessary expense.
Additionally, if you own a business, the same concept applies. Pest control will help to keep your business in strong condition as well as hygienic. Whenever you are trying to write this expense off, you will deduct the cost of pest control under maintenance.
These ordinary and necessary expenses can only be deducted in the year they are paid, even if the service was completed the previous year. This is important to watch when having your space sprayed for pests at the end of the year.
