Are travel expenses (i.e. air fare, car rental, etc.) deductible for checking on a property I own out of state?
Are the associated maintenance and repairs tax deductible? (Listed above.)

If you are traveling there for THAT purpose (checking on/supervising that maintenance is being done) a case could be made
the trip is deductible. HOWEVER, if you are also spending some time (a couple of days, etc.) sightseeing, visiting friends, going
out and vacationing, etc. then an examiner will most surely not allow such a deduction. It would not pass "the smell test".
Be very careful when trying this type of expense deduction.
