Taxes and Renting Your US Property

So you’ve purchased your dream vacation property, maybe you have made some renovations to it and furnished it. You are ready to begin using it when something happens at work/family and you cannot use it as much as you had hoped. Being the prudent investor that you are you decide to rent the property to help offset some of your costs. You begin advertising the unit for rent on the Canada to Arizona website and you are swamped with requests to rent your place. What are the tax implications of this? Do you have to pay tax and file a tax return in the US? Are there withholding taxes that need to be considered and what expenses, if any, are deductible?
