Surgent's Guide to Understanding the Passive Activity Rules (PAR4)

Now more than ever, every business owner and real estate investor must determine if they materially participate in any and all trades or businesses, because there are potential implications for the net investment income tax. These extremely complicated rules require an in-depth understanding of election and planning issues that CPAs need to know. The IRS has been very aggressive in audits under the passive loss rules.

  • Understand the passive activity rules on a much deeper level
  • Discuss tax planning issues on these topics with clients

Highlights

  • A survey of the 300 pages of regulations under the passive activity loss rules
  • Understanding and substantiating material participation
