Net amount of cash than an investor requires from an income-producing property, after taxes, for a period of time, usually a year. It is computed by accumulating all rental receipts for the period and deducting from them all cash-related expenditures applicable to the property, such as the mortgage principal payments, mortgage interest, insurances, taxes. Depreciation, a noncash expenditure, is deducted initially for purposes of computing operating income upon which income taxes are based. However, since it is a noncash expenditure, it is in the end added back to get spendable income.
