Hi, my name is ***** ***** I can help. Rental losses are often limited to other passive income and therefore are usually suspended (not allowed to be deducted) until the passive activity is sold (basically when the rental property is disposed of). IRC 1231 losses are treated as would be treated as an ordinary loss on Form 1040 and could create an NOL.
I can't really provide you with an answer for sure without looking at your return. As an additional service I can review your 2014 return. If you accept you can upload a redacted copy (personal information blacked out or removed) to a Dropbox folder so others on this site will not have access to it.
