Course Description

Since the enactment of the passive activity loss limitation rules in 1986, taxpayers and practitioners have been frustrated in attempts to have economic losses incurred in activities described as “passive” offset income derived from other sources. The passive income and loss rules create complex tax reporting, controversy, and confusion as to how various business and investment activities should be classified. For clients with real estate investments, it is often difficult to sort out which losses and expenses can be used to offset income. The focus on “passive” income and losses as distinguished from “active” income and losses has intensified greatly now as the new 3.8-percent Net Investment Income Tax (NIIT) has become effective and subjects passive income to this new tax.

This Online CPE/CE tax Webinar, presented by note author and tax educator, J. Patrick Garverick CPA, CFA will help participants understand the complications involved in offsetting income by applying losses from activities described as “passive.” He is an outstanding speaker and presenter and will provide straightforward explanations and helpful tips on this important topic, so clients can be advised with confidence. All tax professionals, tax preparers, accountants, attorneys, and financial and estate planners who advise clients on critical tax, estate planning, and wealth management matters will benefit from this practice-oriented seminar.

This comprehensive training is designed to get the accountant up to speed quickly with the complex passive activity loss (PAL) rules that apply to certain investments in trades or businesses and rental activities. The cornerstone of the Online CE Webinar is the in-depth coverage of the detailed tax law and regulations applicable to Passive Activities under IRC §469 and how and when the 3.8% Net Investment Income Tax under §1411 applies.

Each attendee will receive the most comprehensive passive activity reference manual with numerous practice aids and real-world examples.
