Form 8582 Passive Activity Loss Limitations


Purpose of Form:

Form 8582 is used by noncorporate taxpayers to figure the amount of any passive activity loss (PAL) for the current tax year and to report the application of prior year unallowed PALs.

A PAL occurs when total losses (including prior year unallowed losses) from all your passive activities exceed the total income from all your passive activities.

Generally, passive activities include:

  • Trade or business activities in which you did not materially participate for the tax year.
  • Rental activities, regardless of your participation.

Who Must File

Form 8582 is filed by individuals, estates, and trusts who have passive activity deductions (including prior year unallowed losses). However, you do not have to file Form 8582 if you meet the following exception.
