Business Tax Reporting on the 1040: Real Estate and Self-Employed Online Workshop


This course will dive into tax reporting for Schedule E, Supplemental Income and Loss, and Schedule C, Profit or Loss from Business (Sole Proprietorship), the heart of many tax returns. With Schedule E, we will discuss income and expense reporting of rental properties; passive activity rules; qualified business income eligibility; vacation home rental rules; self-rentals; and real estate professionals. With Schedule C, we will examine income reporting; identify which expenses are deductible and which are not including meals and entertainment, home office, and depreciation; calculate qualified business income; and set up an accountable expense reimbursement plan. Finally, we will discuss statutory employees and their income and expense reporting requirements. There will be a comprehensive example on properly completing Schedule E and Schedule C for business owners and statutory employees.

  • Define passive activity rules.
