Passive Income

Revenue or income from investments in which the individual investor does not actively or materially participate. Limited partnerships and real estate investments are considered passive. Passive income losses cannot be used against active income. Real estate losses are always considered passive income losses; but they may be deducted against active income if the individual actively participated in at least the management decisions and personal active income is less than $150,000. Contrast this with active income and portfolio income, which are other forms of taxable ordinary income.
