Tax Shelter

Investments or maneuvers that can produce opportunities to lower income or capital gains taxes. Changes to the tax codes have severely hampered most tax shelters. Previously, paper losses from real estate investments could be used to offset taxable personal income. No longer. The IRS now distinguishes between passive and active income: losses from passive income such as most real estate investments can only be offset against other passive income. Passive income losses cannot be offset against active income.
