What is a Real Estate Professional?

Real estate professionals can invest in real estate without the passive activity loss limitations that ordinary real estate investors are subject to. To be considered a real estate professional, each tax year, you must meet the following two requirements:

  • More than 50% of the personal services you perform in all businesses during the year must be performed in a real estate business in which you materially participate.
  • You must work at least 750 hours in a real estate trade or business.
