Recorded CD
About This Course:
This webinar will update tax advisors and return preparers on the key challenges and practical solutions for accurately preparing Form 8582. The panel will provide guidance and rules to minimize the impact of the 3.8% surtax and maximize permissible use of passive losses.


Tax advisors and preparers are often stymied in accurately reporting decisions and passive loss computations on Form 8582, partially due to the complex calculations involved, which are required for both regular and AMT taxes.

While the rules for the new 3.8% federal investment income surtax add complexity, advisors also have opportunities to minimize the impact, including a provision for a one-time regrouping of passive activities. Reporting professionals must understand how to take advantage of these options.

Our panel will provide you with a drill-down on the passive activity rules coupled with lessons from their own experiences and best practices. The panel’s insights will guide you to avoid potential traps, minimize the tax consequences, and maximize the tax benefits.

Listen as our panel of veteran advisors offers compliance strategies for properly completing Form 8582, minimizing the bite of the Medicare surtax, and maximizing deductions within passive activity loss limitations.
