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.

Itemized deductions

Items, such as interest, state and local income and sales taxes, charitable contributions, and medical deductions, claimed on Schedule A of Form 1040. Itemized deductions are subtracted from adjusted gross income to arrive at taxable income. The amount of itemized deductions is also subject to a reduction when adjusted gross income exceeds certain limits.
