Smart investors claim property depreciation. Here are a quick few points about depreciation investors should be aware of:

* Investors can claim an average of $5,000-$10,000 in deductions on properties in the first full financial year
* Tax returns for the previous two financial years can be adjusted if you have not been claiming depreciation
* Every investor should request a tax depreciation schedule. The owners of both new and old investment properties can save thousands
* The fee for a tax depreciation schedule is 100% deductible
