Hi, my name is ***** ***** I can help. Rental real estate is a passive activity and losses from the activity are often suspended until their is income or until the activity is disposed of. Is your program generating Form 8582, Passive Activity Loss Limitation? In addition, while the trust could deduct a rental real estate loss if the passive activity rules allowed it, a trust is not allowed to distribute rental losses, only income. A trust is different from a partnership or S corporation in that regard as it is unable to pass through all items of income, deductions, and credits to the beneficiary.
Schedule E is the proper place to report rental real estate income and losses. I can only give out my personal information if you accept an additional service offer, which I will post now.
