I am a rent-controlled tenant in a 6-unit building in Manhattan.The new landlord has been negotiating vacate agreements with cash buyouts & we are now down to 2 occupied apartments. Does anyone know if the cash buyout is considered ordinary income or capital gains? At what rate would it be taxed? Also if a lawyer negotiates the settlement, are his fees tax deductible since they resulted in taxable income?
