I am informed by the Revenue Commissioners that in a rental situation, where allowable expenses exceed rents, the loss can only be used to reduce a person's taxable rental income from Irish sources in years subsequent to that in which the loss arose. There are no circumstances in which a rental loss can be set off against a person's PAYE income.
