Overview

Now more than ever, every business owner and real estate investor must determine if they materially participate in any and all trades or businesses, even if they make a profit or a loss, because of 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 and will now expand their investigation to include the NII tax.

Major Topics:

  • A survey of the 300 pages of regulations under the passive activity loss rules
  • Understanding and substantiating material participation
  • An in-depth discussion of when you may or may not make an aggregate election for activities
  • What does it mean to qualify as a real estate professional?
  • Understanding the implications of the net investment income tax
  • Pass-through entity issues and answers
  • Investment income, passive income, and capital gain income: separate categories create unique problems
  • What expenses are allowed against NII, and how do you calculate them?
  • Carryovers, NOLs, AMT, and other issues
  • Tax planning for AGI and minimization of this tax
  • Unique tax issues of sales of S corporation stock or partnership interests

Learning Objectives

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