Efile 1040ez Net investment income may include rental income and other income from passive activities. Efile 1040ez Use Form 8960, Net Investment Income Tax, to figure this tax. Efile 1040ez For more information on NIIT, go to IRS. Efile 1040ez gov and enter “Net Investment Income Tax” in the search box. Efile 1040ez Reminders Photographs of missing children. Efile 1040ez  The Internal Revenue Service is a proud partner with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. Efile 1040ez Photographs of missing children selected by the Center may appear in this publication on pages that would otherwise be blank. Efile 1040ez You can help bring these children home by looking at the photographs and calling 1-800-THE-LOST (1-800-843-5678) if you recognize a child. Efile 1040ez Introduction Do you own a second house that you rent out all the time? Do you own a vacation home that you rent out when you or your family isn't using it? These are two common types of residential rental activities discussed in this publication. Efile 1040ez In most cases, all rental income must be reported on your tax return, but there are differences in the expenses you are allowed to deduct and in the way the rental activity is reported on your return. Efile 1040ez First, this publication will look at the rental-for-profit activity in which there is no personal use of the property. Efile 1040ez We will look at types of income and when each is reported, and at types of expenses and which are deductible. Efile 1040ez Chapter 2 discusses depreciation as it applies to your rental real estate activity—what property can be depreciated and how to figure it. Efile 1040ez Chapter 3 covers the actual reporting of your rental income and deductions, including casualties and thefts, limitations on losses, and claiming the correct amount of depreciation. Efile 1040ez Special rental situations are grouped together in chapter 4. Efile 1040ez These include condominiums, cooperatives, property changed to rental use, renting only part of your property, and a not-for-profit rental activity. Efile 1040ez Finally, in chapter 5, we will look at the rules for rental income and expenses when there is also personal use of the dwelling unit, such as a vacation home. Efile 1040ez Sale or exchange of rental property. Efile 1040ez   For information on how to figure and report any gain or loss from the sale, exchange or other disposition of your rental property, see Publication 544, Sales and Other Dispositions of Assets. Efile 1040ez Sale of main home used as rental property. Efile 1040ez   For information on how to figure and report any gain or loss from the sale or other disposition of your main home that you also used as rental property, see Publication 523, Selling Your Home. Efile 1040ez Tax-free exchange of rental property occasionally used for personal purposes. Efile 1040ez   If you meet certain qualifying use standards, you may qualify for a tax-free exchange (a like-kind or section 1031 exchange) of one piece of rental property you own for a similar piece of rental property, even if you have used the rental property for personal purposes. Efile 1040ez   For information on the qualifying use standards, see Rev. Efile 1040ez Proc. Efile 1040ez 2008–16, 2008 IRB 547, at http://www. Efile 1040ez irs. Efile 1040ez gov/irb/2008-10_IRB/ar12.
