Rental Income For U.S. Citizen

My two brothers and I own a home in Europe. (Both my brothers live in Europe. While they are not U.S. citizens, I am. We each own 1/3 of the property.)
My brothers are planning to dip into their savings and renovate the house. The plan is to rent the house once the renovations are done.
Because I cannot afford to contribute my part to cover the renovation costs, they are proposing that they keep all rental income once the house is rented out again. They would do that for an X number of years. After that we would each get 1/3 of the rental income.
Am I nevertheless liable for paying taxes to the IRS on rental income that I would not be getting for the X number of years?

As long as income and deductions are allocated in a commercially reasonable manner, the IRS should recognize it. Since your plan has economic substance, you should not have to pay taxes on money you don't receive.
