This course discusses two sets of IRS rules that may limit the amount of deductible loss from trade, business, rental, or other income-producing activities on a tax return-the passive activity rules and the at-risk rules. As a basic level course, it is most beneficial to professionals new to the passive activity and at-risk rules for deducting losses, such as those at the staff or entry level of the organization. It may also benefit an experienced professional with limited exposure to these rules.
Upon successful completion of this course, the user should be able to:
assess issues that taxpayers may face when dealing with the passive activity rules, and
determine how the at-risk rules limit a taxpayer's losses.
