This webinar will examine in detail the complicated and somewhat contradictory rules of Sec. 280A as related to vacation home rentals. The basic Sec. 280 rules are explained through a series of examples, and the controversy over reporting interest and tax deductions is examined closely. This will be followed by a series of planning techniques, including de minimis rentals, legitimate repair days, swaps, and tax opportunities afforded by pooling arrangements following the Razavi court decision. The discussion will also examine situations via examples where it might be to the taxpayer’s advantage to increase personal use days in order to have the Sec. 280 limitations apply.

Leaving so soon, my little pretty? Why my little party’s just beginning.” So says the Wicked Witch of the West to Dorothy. Apparently the little girl from Kansas isn’t the only one in a hurry to escape – U.S. taxpayers by the thousands are abandoning their citizenship in hopes of fleeing the evil clutches of the IRS. But the party may indeed just be starting with the imposition of the expat tax, the government’s last-ditch attempt to grab its “fair” share. This course will help practitioners determine who is subject to the exit tax, how it is computed, and when it must be reported.
