How do I access Form 4835 for an individual return? Is Form 4835 available for an estate, trust, partnership, or s-corp return?
Form 4835 is available in an individual return for taxpayers who need to report farm rental income based on crops or
livestock produced by a tenant. Use screen 4835 on the income tab to make necessary entries. Note that certain persons should not use Form 4835; see the instructions for details.
Passive activity rules may limit how much of a 4835 loss you can take. The Activity Type on the 4835 screen affects this.
- A - Active rental real estate - flows to 8582, line 1 ("Active Real Estate Activities") (DEFAULT)
- B - Other passive activity - flows to 8582, line 3 ("All Other Passive Activities")
- C - Real estate professional - does not flow to 8582
If you do not select an entry from the Activity Type drop list, A - Active rental real estate - flows to 8582 line 1 ("Active Real Estate Activities") (DEFAULT) is selected on the form.
For an explanation of how your loss is handled, look for a Form 8582 Passive Activity Loss Limitations and the associated worksheets Wks 8582* (WK_8582* in Drake15 and prior) (where the * is the worksheet number).
An estate or trust with rental income and expenses from crop and livestock shares should use Schedule E (Form 1040), Part I instead.
Partnerships or S corporations with rental income and expenses from crop and livestock shares should use Form 8825 instead.
