THis question is specifically pertaining to 'Real Estate Professional". Who ever answered this question answered for a person with less that 160K income for non-real estate professional.
Assumption: I am a real estate professional. I incurr 500,000 losses on real estate properties. Can it be offset against my wife's income? (Assumption my wify's income is equal to greater then losses. If not can we accumulate the passive income exceeding my wife's income?)
