Whether someone is actively and materially participating, real estate, by definition, is a passive activity. If this client has an income over $125K and the client is NOT a real estate professional, then the loss is not allowed in the current period due to Passive Activity limitation.

You have to find someplace in your program to indicate this situation applies.
Under this scenario, the loss should be allowed.
