Surgent's Getting More Active with the Passive Activity Rules & the Net Investment Income Tax (PAIT)
Tell a Friend About This EventTell a Friend
 

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.

The IRS has been very aggressive in audits under the passive loss rules and will now expand their investigation to include the NII tax.
