Hello, Thank you for using justanswer. I can assist you with your questions today.
On Form 8582 I am required to list on worksheet 3 net profit, net loss, gain and loss. - Yes correct you would list the net loss on page 2, worksheet 3 of Form 8582 in column b
For this rental property should I assume that in the above example I would list the same amount ($10) under columns b and e (net loss and loss)? - Yes correct, the corresponding entry on Form 8582 would be on page 1 Part I (#3 a-d).
Please let me know if you have any further questions.
Thanks. Related issue. I am filing this form with amended 1040X forms for three separate tax years. Am I better off mailing the three returns in a single envelope so that they are processed together (since the purpose of the amendment for each year is identical) or am I better off mailing them in three separate envelopes so the IRS doesn't get the three amended returns lost or mixed up?
