I own rental property. Have the passive activity loss rules been changed by recent tax legislation?

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 did not make any direct changes to the passive activity loss rules. Those with rental real estate and income below a set amount may still be able to deduct up to $25,000 of rental losses annually.

Tax Glossary


A fixed deduction allowed to every taxpayer, except those who may be claimed as a dependent by another person. Extra exemption deductions are allowed for a spouse on a joint return and for each qualifying dependent. A deduction of $3,400 is allowed for each exemption claimed on 2007 returns, but the deduction is phased out for certain high income individuals.
